So far i've made two batches of Festa Brew and i thought they were pretty decent. Now i'd like to try something a little different and make a wheat beer with an orange tang to it. I'd appreciate if anybody could give me any info on how to go about doing so thanks

Add the zest (colored part) from 1 or 2 oranges at about 10-15 minutes left in the boil for a lil zip.

Make sure to only get the zest not the pith (the white part), or else it will add unwanted bitterness.
