Title: Blood orange hefe
Post by: deanocamino on June 24, 2012, 09:12:57 PM
Could not get ahold of any real blood oranges, but they make this kick ass natural blood orange juice I planed on using. I have about 1/2 gallon of it. Gonna start with a quart added to the secondary. Anybody have any expierenct using just juice in a beer. I have only used fresh fruit or fruit puree's

I recently brewed a wheat beer with black cherry juice...  I used 2 pints, added them into the primary after 10 days fermentation and let it ferment out. Nice cherry flavor/aroma, but not overpowering. Can still taste the wheat beer flavors too. Have had many compliments on this one.

I have a blood orange tree in my yard, I make a BO beer every year. Usually the zest of four oranges and then take about a qt of juice and boil it down to a syrup and add at kegging time.

Is this the recipe from extreme brewing? How much blood orange does the recipe call for? Would you just be adding the "juice" to secondary?
