I'm wanting to serve this on July 4th. I keg. When's the ideal time to brew this? If I do it now, it'll be ~5 weeks.. This likes to get served young, right?

You should be just fine with 5 weeks head start, and yes its best enjoyed young.

Make sure you start soaking your orange zest now too as it will also take awhile to extract the volatile oils.

My zest has been soaking & smells delicious... Two oranges worth of peel in a couple of cups of vodka. I've got two & a half gallons of brew there. How much is too much? What's the best practice for adding it (minus the zest of course) - I don't want to overdo the orange, but at the same time, don't want to underdo it.

I usually put 1cup of vodka per 5 gallon batch. Each cup has ~2 oranges of peel.

It's a matter of your taste so just be sure to add small incremental amounts until it suits your taste buds.

I need to do this one again. I have some 'skeeter pee' that I'm considering mixing with a wheat, but not sure it'll be anywhere as good as the orange.

Thanks for the advice. Put in half a cup of the vodka into the keg. I'll give it a taste test in a day or two, see if more is needed.

So the half batch of this that I put the orange vodka in is a nice wheat, but not orange-y enough IMO. I'm going to add what's left of the orange vodka tonight.

The other half I put a pound of blueberries & a half pound of raspberries in for a week. That is *delicious*. Absolutely delicious. And very pink!

Both are going to go down well at our friends' July 4th party. Keg of the orange wheat, growlers of the pinky-pie beer
