well, I let my wifey pick 2 next brews - one ended up way too bitter for her taste (tho it depends on the mood - one day its good, other day its totally undrinkable while I cant note any changes in the beer) and other one ended up too bitter too without mood factor, so lesson 1 with wifey brewing:
BEWARE OF HOPS!
on the other hand, wheat beer she helped me with turned out lovely and is almost gone.
so wheat beer is a must imho

+1 plain fresh oranges work, fresh blood oranges work as well.
