I've only brewed a few batches of belgians therefore my knoledge for substitutions is limited. I am having a difficult time finding sweet orange peel. Would this be found in a health food store or can I just dry some orange peels?

You can buy dried orange peel at most supermarkets in the spice section, or of course at a natural foods grocery. Or you can grate the rind of a regular fresh orange. Use only the orange outer portion; the white inner pith causes a ham-like flavor.

Use the pith if you're making Belgian Meat Beer, and not Belgian Wheat Beer

If you can, use bitter orange peel from curacao oranges. My last Witbeer turned out crappy, too much of a citrusy taste. IMO bitter orange peel adds a nice bitterness if you keep your hop IBUs low enough.

Don't go pithing in your beer.
