I would use the priming calculator on northernbrewer.com. I like that one more than the one on tasty brew.

Just add Summit hops at flameout and dry hop. More orange flavor than you can handle. You'll be wanting something other than orange flavor!

How long did everyone primary for? I brewed this last wednesday 4/11 and its already at 1.005 from an OG of 1.042. Im thinking I will bottle it this sunday which is about a week and a half. I know the yeast is quite vigorous so I was hoping to drink it by the second weekend of May (12) which would be over a month from brew day.

I brewed this bad boy last Tuesday night. Tweaked a few things here and there, but same concepts. Used 64oz freshly squeezed BO juice, 3068, and the carboy burps smell awesome. Pics and my recipe soon to follow..

I'm drinking a glass of this right now. I primaried for 14 days and bottle conditioned it for 13 days. I followed the original recipe exactly. It is pretty delicious, I will definitely be making this again soon.
