Here is my recipe. Slightly altered from the original all grain recipe.

Weyermann Pale Ale Malt 5 lbs 1.44 oz
Weyermann Pale Wheat Malt 3 lbs 3.04 oz
Briess Torrified Wheat 8 oz (for head retention)
.5 oz hallertau at 60 min
.5 oz saaz at 20 min
.5 oz hallertau at 10 min
Wyeast Weihenstephan Weizen 3068

So is the general consensus for a good orange taste to do between 4-6 blood oranges zesting them and putting the fruit in a 160 water, then adding all of that to primary?

Tapped mine a week or so for a family bbq. Followed the DFH recipe but added a pinch of coriander to accent the citrus.

It's really a light, refreshing wheat beer. The orange zest and coriander reminded me of a blue moon knock off. If I ever brew this again, I'll double or triple the orange pulp. I'd also actually serve it with fresh blood orange slices.

I'll use 10-12 orange pulps and 3-4 orange zests next time.

So 10-12 orange pulps and the zest of 3-4 in 160 water then into primary?

How do you like the addition of coriander? Was that during the boil or in primary? And how much did you add?

Sorry for all the questions, this will be my 5th brew so Im still new. Thanks.

Bump, brewing this tonight. I think I am doing the fruit of 10 oranges and the zest of at least 6 because I want a good orange flavor to come through.

How much did volumes of CO2 of priming sugar did every carb with? Im thinking 6oz to give it a good head.

Also did anyone add honey to theirs?

Edit: No blood oranges, all I saw was navel, Florida (whatever those are), and clementines I think. Is Navel good?

I brewed this with about
8.09 lbs of pale ale malt
3.19 lbs of pale wheat
.5lbs torrified wheat
Same hop schedule.
1 oz of fresh orange zest at flameout
.75lb orange blossom honey at flameout

zest of 6 oranges and the flesh of 8 into the primary along with the water they were steeped in

Hopefully thats not too much orange. It seems 4 wasn't enough, and then even more didnt seem to do the trick for everyone.

I made mine with the zest of 9 oranges, and mine has a definite citrus hint to it. It's a trade off though, because it has almost zero head retention, even though it's well carbonated. A by product of putting that much orange oil in the beer I guess. I don't really care though, I care more about the flavor than anything and it's quite good. Just something to think about if you're shooting for a good head.

Hopefully that .5lb of torrified wheat I added counteracts that. I definitely care more about flavor than head retention. I think the zest of 6 oranges in primary plus 1 oz (2 oranges zested) at flameout should be good. Interested to see what the honey adds. It was very very sweet.

Edit: My OG was a bit low at 1.042 (BIAB) even though I had a 75 min mash and I sparged. I ended up with more wort than I intended, oh well. It should still be good, just a bit weaker.

Ok about ready to bottle this but wanted to make sure how much priming sugar. I will be using regular table sugar for a 5 gallon batch. Sorry if i missed seeing the answer somewhere else.
