What would you rate the size of your oranges? Mine were pretty large, so it would likely be the equivalent of three normal sized oranges using my two large ones. I'm thinking adding more zest to the secondary might not be a good idea since it could introduce sour flavors?

OK, this is my official seal of approval..."It rocks!!!".....just one more to add to the list for this winning recipe! thanks Black Lab......PM me your address and I'll send you a couple (maybe I'll throw in a surprise or two as well) as a gesture of gratitude and because I'm curious how mine stacks up to the original. I love it, and I see why Pol was freaking out about the smooth bitterness...it really is smooth for the amount of hop flavor there. this will get brewed again soon! and the only thing I will do differently is ferment it a bit lower, as I let this one go in my office at around 67-68. Next time I'll make sure to keep it in the low 60's, because I think S-04 is best there - nice and clean.....this still turned out great nonetheless.

They were pretty large. Larger than a baseball but just smaller than a softball I'd say. I think adding fresh zent into the secondary with the hops could come out too orange-y. All the concentrated orange flavor in the oil is just going to be sitting in the beer and I would think make it _too_ strong.

Awesome dude! Glad you're enjoying it. I've been remodeling my house and lost the brewery (garage) for a few months, so I'm out of this stuff. The project will be done in two weeks so I can get some more in the fermenter.

I'd like to try this one without the coriander seed. What do you think? Sounds like it would be a good one for the summer

Up to you - I've never done it without so can't speak to that. Let us know how it works out.

How much does the choice of crystal matters?
Are there a distinct flavor difference between 10L and 40L other than coloring?
I'll go with the original and use 10L on my first batch.
Time to brew after work on Friday to celebrate memorial day weekned.

The crystal 40L adds a little color and adds more of a caramel back bone... it is really pleasing. Try it after you do the 10L.

I made this with 'leftovers' once and only had 60L on hand. It was still good but the 60 seemed to hide the orange flava somewhat.
