Hello my friends,

I wondered if somebody has experience using orange juice in beer? And in wheat beer?

I have never heard of anyone having a good experience fermenting orange juice. The first thing that always pops into my mind is pruno.

Berries are a more popular choice when flavoring wheats.

Do you mean pre- or post fermentation?

It is actually an intriguing idea as a weird take on a shandy or radler.... I will experiment.

EDIT: I meant after fermentation. You do not want to combine yeast and OG...

I flavored a cider with orange extract with good results. I've heard fermented orange juice smells and tastes like barf.

I am interested in both before and after fermation.

I like the taste of orange, and wanted my wheat beer to have some orange flavour...

if you want your beer to have orange flavor, why not just use orange peel?

That was going to be my suggestion. Throw a couple of oz in with 10 mins left in the boil.

Strangely enough I have added orange juice in the secondary; a 1/2 gallon to be precise. Did this in a "Beer Captured" recipe for Fantom. Do a search on HBT for a Fantom thread where I posted the recipe. The base was a beer containing some small % of wheat malt, 1 lb or so.

It worked out quite well a good beer, but without ever having Fantom I have no idea how close it came to the original. Remember to add pectic enzyme so that the beer will clear.
