I used 4 navel oranges, 1 red grapefruit, 2 lemons & 2 limes. Next time around I may buy a micro zester to minimize the pith in the zest. Last time just used an old school pyramid-shaped grater & grated the hell out of it down to the fruit.

This is definitely now a staple- really impressive results!

Round 4 is in the fermenter! I came across blood oranges in the store at the end of December so bought them immediately as I totally missed out last year. Found minneolas a few days later and I was in business. The character of the zest makes a pretty big difference in this beer, so I'm excited to have the same fruits as the original.

The fermenter is in my living room, smells great!

Been looking forward to trying this recipe. I'm normally not a huge fan of wheat, but this one just speaks refreshing. Thanks.

I think you could drop it down a bit but it's kinda reliant on an IPA-like balance. If you melded it with a lower ABV hoppy pale ale recipe I think it'd work fine.

I just brewed up a 10gal batch of this partially because I was excited that blood oranges are still available. Half is getting WLP001, the other half is getting Brett B Trois. It should be an interesting experiment. Here's some cool pics of the fruit and zest:

Brewed this (slight variations to citrus based on what was available) as my first all grain batch, opened bottles last weekend and it is incredible! Great recipe!!
