The amount of spices that tastes close to the BM vary a lot from people to people, so there isn't an answers on that. If you feel you need more orange, add more until you like it.
I'm currently using dry orange peels from Frontier, available in Amazon. Didn't noticed any significant difference from the McCormick Valencia peels and it cost much less.

Thanks Nilo. How many ozs of peels do you add and how long do you boil them?

Hmmm...that's exactly what I did and I'm not happy with it. Maybe I used the wrong kind of oranges. Anybody have a good/bad experience with naval oranges?

Not yet. As I said earlier this was my first attempt. I foolishly put off my grocery shopping until the night before brew day and went to three different grocery stores looking for valencia oranges. At my third (and by Gawd final!) stop I got the best looking oranges they had.

I think this time I'll just get the dried orange peels from the LHBS.

Using fresh peels is a whole different deal than dried peels. Dry peels gives better results in my experience, and allow more conssistency also.

Awesome. Good info! I've seen them at the LHBS, but I'm always concerned about their age and how long they have been sitting there.

I just like throwing a fresh slice of orange in the beer, does anyone else not do this? Not enough orange, throw a bigger piece in your glass
