I've used fresh grapefruit peel. I just peel it with a very sharp potato peeler so I get as little of the pith as I possibly can. Then all the grapefruit flesh goes in too after being whizzed a little in a blender to make the juice more available.

1 entire grapefruit (less the pith) per gallon of beer.

However the best grapefruit flavor beer I've made doesn't have any grapefruit in it. It was a single hop with just Cascade. Citra and Chinook also add a lot of grapefruit flavor when stuffed in at flameout.
