But hey, to each their own and RDWHAHB!
Soak the orange in vodka, hey extra alcohol isn't bad.

Now that's an even better idea.

So I brewed this up today for the first time. Also first time using a pump to recirculate and whirlpool. Resirc went fine but I learned a lesson. Don't freeball dried orange peel if using a pump. Whirlpooled for about a minute till it clogged. Next project is building a hop spider. Whole house smells great tho. Even swmbo likes it.

I actually had a bottle of this sitting downstairs from alst April/May when I brewed it. I popped it open tonight. Smells and tastes awesome. Some of the cascade flavor definitely died down but still a great brew. I look forward to doing it again!

Just pitched yeast on a batch of this last night. I used Centennial instead of Cascades, since that is what I had. Also, I used a vegetable peeler to carefully peel off just to orange part of the orange peel from some organic oranges. It took quite a lot to get 2 oz dried. I am looking forward to tasting it.

Brewed a batch of this a few weeks ago. I subbed the late addition cascades with centennials, and fermented with US-05. I just racked it to the secondary and I'm dry-hopping with some more centennials. The sample I took was super clean and tasted awesome! Can't wait to keg this!

I had tasted the brew when transferring to secondary prior to dry hopping and almost left it as is. The flavor and aroma were great. This recipe had so many good reviews that I opted to go with the dry hop step. I just tried the first bottle. Whoa! Hopefully the hop flavor will mellow a bit over time. It's a bit stronger than I had expected. Strong aroma, strong taste. A hop-lovers beer for certain. I will be making this again but scaling the dry hops way back to about 25%.

So I just bottled this version on Sunday and let me tell you it is delicious. Came in at a nice 8% abv but still has the great orange and cascade flavors and aroma. Gonna be hard to let this one sit for a few weeks especially with the 4th coming up. Gotta thank blacklabs once again for a great recipe.

Just pitched my yeast a few minutes ago on this. My first all-grain batch. Nailed all my gravity readings
I only had 1 oz of coriander and put it in the hop bag with the orange zest. Will it hurt the flavor/aroma to remove them for fermentation?
Cant wait for this one to finish!
