Other
Whirflock Tablet
Fresh Orange Peel Zest

Water
Spring

Yeast
WLP001 California Ale Yeast

Instructions
Brew as usual. Add Honey at the last 10 minutes. Add orange peel throughout
the last 10-15 minutes. Add whirflock tablet in the last 20 mins. I'm brewing this between 68-72F because living in FL that is about as cool as I can get it through using the swamp technique. If you have a fermentation chamber 68F steady would probably be ideal.

After Tasting, the orange zest seems to be a bit much. The hops flavor/aroma and bitterness is great though. I would just eliminate the orange zest next time around.
