Brewed this a couple years back and was a big hit. Just finished a batch this afternoon-looking forward to it again!

Then I see this thread and the idea of blood fruit in my Purple Reign sounds great. I have two quarts of blood orange juice. What do you guys think?
THAT is an interesting brew! It kind of looks like blood! haha. I'll be very interested to see what this looks like in glass and more importantly how the flavor turns out.

Bottled last week and tried last night. Carbonated well and tastes great! Coloring lighter than expected and orange flavor not as strong as expected, however, great flavor! Will definitely brew again and will post a picture next time I pop one open (later today for sure)!

Looks like I'll be brewing this again on Sunday. Last time I did it with Valencias, extract and bottles. This time, blood oranges, all-grain and kegged. I'll post pics hopefully in about 3-4 weeks when I'm drinking it.

I'm picking up everything to brew today -- also my first all-grain (BIAB) so hopefully I won't screw it up

It tasted terrible! I dumped the whole batch. I will experiment with the black rice again in the future. I'll try the blood orange Hefeweizen straight up soon.
