It shouldn't unless you want it to...make the lemonade and taste it before you add it, if you like the taste, you will like it in the beer!

So the BOH was a big hit at our 4th block party! Many comments were surrounded by the smoothness and orangeness of the beer. The orange really came through. Tartness was there but not overpowering or annoying. Smell was all oranges, and then some more oranges. Move over mimosa I now have a new favorite breakfast beverage! The beer was smooth, easy to drink, and had a nice mouthfeel. I made the recipe as posted without any mods. If I had to do it again I might dial back the BO syrup an oz. or two. For my taste the orange was a tad on the strong side, but tasty nonetheless. The yeast combo seemed to work really well. The keg did not last very long, must make more before summer is over. Thanks for the recipe SD Slim, much appreciated.

Was thinking of harvesting yeast to brew this again but since the two yeasts are combined, I would have to pitch two batches of the mixed yeast and don't know if I would get the same flavor profile. What do you think Slim?

I have reused the yeast and it gets close to the original....so I would go for it.

I don't suppose you have a gravity reading on the Bloodorangeaid itself? If not I'll take one when I mix it up. Just trying to plug it into beersmith before hand for accurate OG and ABV potential. Without the addition of the bloodorangeaid I'm already getting OG 1.069 & ABV 6.9
