I'm doing a recipe similar to a Blue Moon.

For the orange zest does it matter what type of oranges to use? I noticced in the LHBS that there was dried sweet and dried bitter orange peel, but I'd rather use fresh.

Regular old oranges, tangelos, nectorines (if I'm thinking of the right thing)? What do you think?

Zesting oranges is a pain. Stick with regular oranges and don't get too much of the white stuff in the ale, kind of bitter.

I think that the zest of any orange peel will work as long as the pith (white stuff) isn't added.

Cheers!
