Try a little less then two gallons, but still a heck of a lot of beer. I'm more interested in how you lift a 6L glass, or do you drink it out of a straw? :cross:

I think oranges in Witbiers (most have orange peel in the recipe anyways) and maybe in American wheats might be OK, but never understood why someone would put fruit in a Hefe. Hefeweizens are...

If you want to go with American hops why not try Liberty or Mt. Hood. The cascade and amarillo might be a little to fruity and citrusy, and not sure I would do any late aroma additions.
