Can I ask what your pre-boil gravity was? Beersmith says 1.055 but I'm only 1.030

Hmmm.........your way off. I consistantly hit 1.052 with 22-23 lbs of grain for 12 gallons. I take my measurement right after hot break

Just got the ingredients and noticed the vile of yeast said good for 5 gallons. I'm ready to brew a 10 gallon batch tomorrow. Am I screwed?

You will need to get another vial or build your yeast up which would take a couple of days

Just kegged a batch of this on Friday...it's very orangish in flavor; almost like a screwdriver. Hoping it mellows out a bit...any suggestions to help it along?

How many oranges did you use ? The recipe I posted was for 10 gallons. I just popped a keg on easter that I brewed in January, and I think its the best batch so far.

I did a 10 gallon all grain batch. Ended up using 12 oranges since they were pretty small, and I used your technique of squashing all the orange bits into the fermenter on top of the wort. Hit all the gravities very closely, but I think it still got too much orange flavor..tastes "hot" like it has more alcohol than normal. I don't think it will be bad eventually...just might need some time.

Just noticed the span of time in your last batch. After three months sure this will be awesome.

The same thing happened to me with a dunkelweizen. This will likely turn out to be a refreshing light beer, keep with it! Just in time for spring weather!

Just bottled this Monday night and had a little taste. It's going to be delicous! This was just my second all grain, my numbers were not exact, but pretty close. My OG was 1.056 and FG was 1.007. Very orange in color. I can't wait to drink.

Thanks so much for sharing!!! I am sure this will become an annual summer brew for me.
