I'm going to let it sit for a month, then transfer to keg for at least another month of lagering.

That 10 minute addition smelled fantastic! I can't wait to see how this turns out.
I used the 2565 for my o-fest, and it did chug along forever. I'm using that for this too. Did you use white labs?

edit: nevermind, sounds like you used 2565 but it just didn't do what you expected.

I am surprised to report that the citrus character is so slight as to be barely detectable. Just a very very slight orange peel bitterness. I'm going to need to give it some help in the keg.

Yeah, it's very slight for me as well. I've had it in the keg for a couple days but I plan on leaving it for another 3 weeks or so before I really start drinking it. It needs to clear and lager awhile longer.

Other than that, its a very good beer that is a nice departure from what I normally make.

Do you strain out the orange before fermentation, or leave it in there? I think I'm going to brew this tomorrow. I am thinking of adding a little summit hops for aroma.

Excellent. And yes...strain the orange first. And yes...summit hops with their tangerine aroma/flavor would be AWESOME in this recipe.

Great! This will be my first all-grain batch, using a rubbermaid steel-braided MLT. It is so much cheaper this way and I feel like I can really start brewing now.

Ok I've been reading so many recipes I have been confusing myself! I actually bought the ingredients for the Sterling Gold! That beer sounds delicious too, and not too dramatically different from this one. I think it will still work nice with the Summit - maybe 0.5oz at the end of boil?

They're both in the same spirit of a light beer with some zest. Summit will work fine as an additional flavoring/aroma hop.

would it be the same if i used the American Ale Wyeast W1056 for this? I got something about to come off of a yeast cake of this and was just going to repitch it to this brew. Also i was going to try the summit hops. Do i just sub them in for the Hallertau? Or do i sub the for the Cascade? Or do i just add all of them!!!
