I can't take credit for designing this as it's from an episode of brew tv that Chip Walton did. Except he did an extract version which you can find here
.This is basically Jamil's California Common recipe except I cut back on the hops to let the Clementine flavor come through.Clementines are seasonal during the winter but mandarin oranges which they are in the same family and available now would probably work just as well. I really like the way the orange flavor goes with this style.I used a bucket for primary as it made adding the fruit easier. Before racking to secondary I used a sanatized slotted spoon to scoop out the chunks and smashed them with another spoon to get out the juice. A colander may work better and be easier though.
