the WHOLE peel? (white part as well?)
ive read in a few recipes to use orange zest as the white part is supposedly too bitter.

So had a pretty good brew day for our first All Grain. We substituted flaked oats for the wheat and also had a little bit more coriander and it was fresh ground. We had a nice snack as prescribed and put 2 sweet orange peels in the boil.

Mash stayed at a pretty constant 150* after losing only 2* during. Not bad.
Batch sparged at 170*
Our OG was 1069 and we had 86.7% efficiency with about 6 gallons of wort.
I might primary this for 2 weeks then 2 weeks in secondary with dry hop.
Used Wyeast 1056. First time using liquid as we had done starters on dry before.

The OP did say his efficiency was low. Your og was almost the same as mine. I had thought mine was high but perhaps with better efficiency that is where this recipe should be. I did a 2 week primary. Just moved it over to secondary Monday. Interested in your results as well.

I brewed this a few times with two entire orange peals (white bits too) and one oz corriander in the last fifteen minutes of the boil. It's been my favorite homebrew so far!
