I boiled 4 of the peels for 30 min, and added the last orange during the last 5 minutes of the boil. The batch had a wonderful orange aroma during the boil and througout fermentation, but when I tasted the first bottle of it yesterday, it has absolutely no orange aroma or flavor! The beer has a slight bitterness, but you'd be pretty hard pressed to identify it as orange. I was wondering if anyone has succesfully used oranges in recipes and what amounts and procedures were used. For this recipe I was shooting for the light honey lager with a nice orange aroma and a subtle orange flavor. While we're on the subject of strange brews, anyone ever tried adding sasafras root to a recipe? I'll know in about 3 weeks how it tastes! -Glenn Return to table of contents

Could anyone suggest a good book(s) to read so that I can get on my way? Later, me ----------------- Jason A.
