I'm brewing up northern brewers le petite orange and they say that you can add orange peel and coriander in the boil. It's optional. Has anybody else made it?

First should I add it? Secondly, would tangerine be much different than orange?

Thanks and cheers.

Often, when a recipe calls for orange peel, it is dried orange peel. This lends a bitterness to the beer, not a typical orange sweetness. The orange flavor comes from the coriander, actually.

That being said, I have no idea what fresh tangerine peel would add, but it sounds interesting! I say go for it! Just make sure you don't get the white pith in it, just the peel (and the aromatic oils in the peel).

I added some fresh clementine peel to about 4 oz of cheap vodka and made a tincture. I let it sit for about a week to extract the oils from the peel and added it to the bottling bucket of an american wheat recipe. Gave a nice hint of orange.

And the wheat is what I'd add it to myself. But this recipe is described as a lighter version of a dubbel.
