I pitched 1450 and I got so much orange flavor. 2 oz was ideal.

I won't believe you until I taste it!
Where'd you get the 1450?

Trying this one today. Very excited about it.

Edit: Brew day went smoothly. Hit 1.052 so I'm very close to the recipe. Tasted great. Very excited about this one.

Reason: Edit

Just picked up the ingredients for this. Going to brew later in the week after I free up a carboy.

So I'm going to brew this for the third time tomorrow. I was contemplating substituting some dried orange peel granules I bought from Whole Foods instead of the fresh zest. Has anyone done this in this beer, and if so, does anyone have an idea of the relative amounts to add? I added between 2-4 oz of fresh zest in the past but I don't know how to convert that to dried. I'm thinking a 50% reduction in the amount due to the loss of water.

I just kegged this today. Super excited about it. I have tried some other wheat recipes but this one is a keeper. Thanks for sharing, I'd highly recommend trying it.

I'm just learning how to plug this recipe in BeerSmith 2. I'm not sure I'm doing it right. I have all the ingredients in there but the Est. Original Gravity is off from the recipe, ABV is off, and the bitterness is way off. Do I just slide those over to match?

Hi cgsrfr,

There are alot of variables that can change those values. Effiency will effect the Original Gravity and ABV, also the amount of Alpha Acids your hops actually have will affect the bitterness. How far off is the bitterness?

My suggestion is to be plug in all your variables (your typical effiency, your hops actual AA%, ect and see where it gets you. Scale the recipe accordingly.

Also make sure the recipe type is set to all-grain. I think it is set to extract by default and I've forgot to change that a few times and took me a while to figure out why all my numbers were so far off.
