This shows OG 1.040, but when I put it into BrewTarget, it came up with OG 1.048. It looks like the difference is the 1.24 gal loss between post boil volume and batch size. Isn't that a lot of trub loss?

It is actually something I had forgot to calculate when doing it, I will have to re-do it.

Thank you for pointing that out!

Actually oranges go great in it! I didn't put any in it before I bottled it, but I did stick some in the glass when drinking it and I was very pleased. On the other hand I have another friend that is trying this recipe who did add oranges in his secondary and we should be trying it in the next week so I will let you know how that goes!

Agemmell,
I brewed this last friday. I brewed a partial mash 5 gal though and I had to switch up a few items becasue they were not available in my LHBS. I will post up the recipe later today. Im going to add the oranges tomorrow hopefully.
