This post spans "Recipes" and "Labels" so... I put it in this forum to be safe. Please move if necessary.
This is my second all-grain batch... I love the light colors you can achieve, and how the beer tastes cleaner and better than an extract brew. I am a graphic artist, so doing labels is half the fun for me - makes bottling almost worth it, lol.
Orange Honey Hefe
5 lbs German Pils
4 lbs German wheat
152* for 60 mins
1 lb Orange Blossom Honey at flameout
.5 oz Mt. Hood (60 mins)
peel extract of two large sweet organic oranges (soaked for 2 weeks in Grey Goose)
Used WLP300 because it's the only thing they had. Would have used WLP380, but I'm glad I went with 300 because I think it gave more of a spicy character rather than banana/bubblegum
OG: 1.052, FG: 1.007, ABV: 5.62%
Fermented out fully, dry finish. Spicy orange nose, subtle orange on the aftertaste. I'm into my second one right now, and I love it. Very refreshing, thirst quenching. I am so f-ing jacked that me and my friend's second all-grain effort is this good. This is such a light straw color - a color that could never be achieved with extracts. I'm touching myself right now.
Off to finish O.H.H..... (heh, got my OHH face on, lol)
