I made this for the first time a couple days ago. As I was pushing my orange slices into the carboy I thought, "How am I suppose to get these out?".

Temp is around 75F. OG was 1.040. I used one packet of the Munton standard yeast, rehydrated according to the instructions on the pack. And I couldn't RDWHAHB, as this is my first brew :P

Thanks for the response. Why would the ABV be lower? I would've figured it would be higher. More juice = more sugar = more alcohol?

I'm still a huge noob, so go easy on me.
