According to the wiki, you cannot steep Vienna - it must go thru conversion.

sorry.

I know the fermentation was pretty much over, but do you think I will be alright if the temp got up there really high? It could have been in the 80s or who knows, maybe 90s. I don't have a thermometer on this bucket.

This happened after 11 days of fermenting, the gravity was as low as it would have gone I think.
Well, not optimal conditions and you may see some off flavors. The yeast was probably pooped out as mentioned above. But - drinkable? My guess is yes.

Things are fine, I popped it open last night to see if I should keg it, but a lot of the hops were still above the top of the beer, so I mixed them in a bit and will give them a while longer to sit in there.

I took a gravity reading and tasted it, pretty darn good

Did you use any special type of oranges for the zest?

I can get sweet or bitter orange peel from the LHBS. What are your thoughts on that? I can always just go buy some oranges at the store and zest them myself, just wasn't sure if sweet or bitter was the preference.

I use Brewcraft sweet orange peel. I'm sure that it would be better to use the zest of fresh oranges, but I've never given it a shot. Too easy to just grab the ingredients at the LHBS, and I've been happy with the beer so far.

Just brewed this. I did a 10 gallon batch. Put 04 in one and 05 in the other.

The smell as I would racking to the better bottles was really really nice...
Looking forward to tasting this one.
I got it brewed in time for my New Years Day Bash!

Ahoy hoy,
hmmm this could be interesting, as I used the bitter orange that brewcraft sells. I didnt know they had a sweet till i found it at the OTHER store. Since I stocked up on a couple packages, i hope it turns out well, or Ill have to off it onto co workers. Did anyone other then lil ol me use the bitter orange on this recipe?
A great day to you all!
