That looks & sounds pretty good! I was going to do it as a Hefe,but I like the Belgian white ales too. Decisions,decisions...

Yeah, I was just inspired to try something different instead....the Wit just seemed like a good one to try with the blood oranges. I know...not a far stretch from a Hefe.

Cheers

Not a far stretch,but def a bit different in it's own right. adding those to a Hefe was my 1st idea a while ago. But yours seems like it might be a better fit...

I brewed a Mandarine Orange Heffe (5gal) this past weekend using 5 regular size mandarines and their zest (did not use pith). We were copying a Blood Orange heffe recipe from Sam Calagione's Extreme Brewing. We used Saaz and Hallertauer hops and racked into the primary on top of the mandarine and zest. It's been about half a week and things are bubbling along quite nicely. I'll definitely post our results in 4-5 weeks.

gurrback...sounds awsome. I'll need to try mine with something other than blood oranges as they are only in season for a short time. Best of luck with your Mandarine Orange Hefe

Actually, we meant to use bloody oranges but I was 1 week late picking them up and by the time i got to the store the season had ended. Bad luck! Anyways, I read somewhere that any type of orange would do so I substituted the mandarine.

Update....six, seven weeks in and the orange flavor has really began to shine. The head has become thick and dense. I'll brew this one again for sure.

Cheers
