cant you just wipe it off after every session?

this would do in a pinch for short term storage but is absolutely no substitute for a vacuum sealer...

I'm not a marshmallow fan but what I do know is store bought are disgusting. Homemade are so many worlds better... don't waste them in a beer. use them for smores and add this to your beer:

then drink the beer with smores.

I have a blood orange tree in my backyard and do at least one brew every year. I can tell you that you will get more flavor using the zest than you will with puree. I usually try to get around the zest of 5-6 oranges for a 5gal batch. Not sure if you would still be able to find any now this late in the year but try it your way this time and next year, go grab some fresh oranges and try the zest.

I added the spruce tips one time that had been sitting in the freezer for almost a year... looked like they could have been a little freezer burn.. turns out it was the best spruce beer so far...

yep, 1 oz at 45 min for a 1 gallon batch. I won't do anything over 1gal for spruce beer, to much room for error and these kinds of brews can easily be dumpers... the spruce is like hops, it can be a bit different every year.

I personally don't think you'll get much out of them at 5min. but experiment and see, you may like it that way.

when I did my last spruce ale, I did just pale and C55 malt, magnum for slight bitterness, IBUs came in around 25 and added 1oz spruce tips at 45min, no crush no nothing, just toss em in. This was a 1gal experimental batch and it came out suprisingly well. several people who tried it actually liked it and asked me to make it again.

the first time I made it I added the spruce in at 60min, didn't get much out of it. I would suggest going lightly and you can always add more with the next batches if you feel necessary.

I sure wish they would ship to AZ... I've been working on a clone of this stuff for years... still can't get The Professor to send me his recipe!  :)

me personally, I would move that 20m addition to maybe 10 or 5 and dump a bunch more in. Then either leave the 5 or move it to EOB and dump a whole bunch more in. I don't know what the AA% is for lemon drop but you will have to up the amounts to really get a feel for taste/aroma.
