My pot is only 7 gallons, I'm not gonna risk it.
I wonder what adjustments would need to be made.

I just Brewed this Citrus Weizen on St. Patty's Day and I think it's gonna come out very nice. I had to put a blow tube on my pale after about 12 hours and 24 hours after that it's gurgling away. Just a quick question though. Did you rack to a secondary or just go straight to bottle?

At the time I made this I was big into the "always secondary". But if I did it again I would just let it sit an extra week on the yeast and then bottle.

I brewed this last Saturday.
I added about 2 lbs of Light DME, an extra 1/2 oz. of hops, zest of 2 limes and did a 3 Gallon Boil.
I just felt like experimenting i guess.

My OG was a little low, 1.041
I'm hoping I just didn't have the wort and water mixed well, and got a diluted reading. I guess I'll know when I taste it.

Just a note. I brewed something similar to this thread (may have even posted my recipe in here) and used skins of 3 lemon and 3 orange. Next time I'd cut lemon all together or use 1 less of each. Too much zest IMO. Gave it a strange aroma actually and the taste is just so-so... this was my last extract batch and I have made some good wheats since AG, so maybe that is the problem too.
