6LB Dry Wheat Extract
8oz Orange Blossom Honey
.5oz US Mount Hood Leaf (5.1 %) 45 Min From End
.5oz US Mount Hood Leaf (5.1 %) 20 Min From End
.75oz NZ Hallertauer Aroma Pellets(6.8 %) 10 Min From End
.5oz NZ Hallertauer Aroma Pellets(6.8 %) Flame out
Fresh Orange Peel Zest
WLP001 California Ale Yeast
Brew as usual. Add Honey at the last 10 minutes. Add orange peel throughout
the last 10-15 minutes. Add whirflock tablet in the last 20 mins. I'm brewing this between 68-72F because living in FL that is about as cool as I can get it through using the swamp technique. If you have a fermentation chamber 68F steady would probably be ideal.
After Tasting, the orange zest seems to be a bit much. The hops flavor/aroma and bitterness is great though. I would just eliminate the orange zest next time around.
