I am planning on brewing the Blood Orange Hefeweizen that is The Extreme Brewing
book by Sam Calagione, owner of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery.
I picked up all my ingredients yesterday at my lhbs and then went to get the blood oranges today at my local grocery store. But I learned that blood oranges are out of season. I was told they are a winter orange. I picked up navel oranges instead as a replacement.
Anyone have any thoughts on this?
You think navel oranges will be okay as a replacement for the blood oranges?
What is the main difference between blood oranges and navel oranges?
The recipe suggest this beer as a good summer beer, so therefore I would like to have it for the summer.
