Have you tired this yet? I'd be interested to know if this works. I've been looking for a 1664 (regular) recipe but this would be cool to make too. Maybe try it in a one gallon batch first.

I did. It didn't turn out as I wanted. I'd make the following changes for next time:

- Slightly more pils, less wheat
- Move the 5 minute addition to the 60 minute addition.
- More orange peel
- Slightly less coriander
- Use a different yeast - the taste was wrong. I might try to culture it.

Good luck!

Hi, I was very tempted to try this.
Question, do you use bitter orange or sweet orange? On the bottle it says they use sweet orange.

thx.
