i was also thinking if you used a lager yeast instead and keep it in the fridge.

i love the carbonated orange juice drink you buy in the vase shape glass bottle at the supermarket

Making wine with oranges is difficult because of the high acidity of the oranges. However it is possible.
Here is some recipes for orange wines which may inspire an orfelwein.

I haven't tried orange juice but I have tried Hard Limeade. I belong to a wine making forum and this recipe first appeared over four years ago. I prefer limeade so I used that instead. I didn't filter it and it looks and tastes like lemonade (with a nice kick) when you drink it but it sure is tasty over ice on a hot summer day. It ferments out to about 7%. It doesn't take long to make either. Don't mistake this for Mike's. This isn't a malted beverage. In fact, I think I'll post the recipe. This has been a summertime staple for a lot of people for the past few years.


Hard Lemonade . . 5 gallons

lemonade concentrate for 5 gallons
5 lbs sugar
champagne yeast

Reason: Spelling

I havent tried fermenting it but when I've bought OJ from the store that was too acidic I add just a little bit of chalk (CaCO3) from my brewing supply and it cuts the acid without any off flavors. so maybe adding a little chalk or using water very high in carbonates would allow you to ferment OJ. I would also add some orange zest because the oils in the orange peel contain a lot of orange flavor without any acidity.

Yooper has a recipe in the Wine Recipes section that's quite similar to the Hard Lemonade I posted above.

I think the proper term is, "orangenwein," and I would never attempt it in a manner similar to Ed's recipe.
