I cannot wait to brew this recipe this week. I have just spent about 2.5 hrs reading through this entire thread and have picked up some outstanding tips! This will be only my third batch that I have done. I have been trolling this site for about 6 weeks and have learned a plethora of knowledge from the people on here! Thanks to you all! This is going to be a life long hobby of mine I can already tell!!
So I am going to use 8 blood oranges to add that "extra" orange kick.
Zest all 8, add half of the zest at 10 minutes left of boil and the other half after 7 days of fermentation. The "tea" and half of the orange meat will be added with the wort in primary. The rest of the orange meat will be added with the rest of the zest after 7 days of fermentation.
I will follow the LME adjunct but split it up and add half at 15 minutes left in boil.
Hops will be according to recipe.
Prime with 5.25 oz of corn sugar to give it about 3 vol of CO2
I cannot say the last time I have been so stoked about something!!!! This homebrewing bug has bitten me HARD!
Thanks again to everyone on this great forum AND
