Well, after making this and hearing all my friend's reactions I have decided to post this recipe. It has been an absolute hit. Too bad I can't get satsumas any more this time of year.

As for the satusma peel preparation, I used 4 satusmas and peeled them. I took a cheese grater to the backs of the peel to get the white off of them. I then chopped them up and baked them for about 15 minutes at 300 to dry them out and extract the oils. I'm not sure what you could use as a substitute for the satsumas.

Lookd good, but isn't that a lot of hops.. I know it technically at about 13 IBUs, but 2ozs seems like a lot.

How did this turn out btw?

I didn't really think it was too much, but it's always been my preference to go a little more on hops. The hop aroma played nicely with the sweetness of the satsuma. I'm not sure if you have any experience with satusmas, but they produce a lot more oil in the skin than regular oranges. Needless to say this beer was heavy was heavy on the satsuma taste, though not overpoweringly. This will definitely be entered in competitions next year.

If you want a sweet taste with tart go with a clementine. Its the same thing as a satsuma but with a tighter skin and a bit sour taste balanced nicely with sweet. Ive worked produce for two years now so thought I wouks share that
