Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: Orange Hefe?
« on: June 12, 2013, 10:05:59 AM »
Thanks, everyone! I found some natural orange extract and some sugar free Orange Crush flavoring on Amazon that I think might work but I'm not sure how much of it I would need for a 5 gallon batch. Thoughts?

Natural Orange Extract (a bit pricey)

Orange Crush (cheaper alternative)

Also, would it be crazy to add some lactose to it to give it an orange cream taste?

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Orange Hefe?
« on: June 11, 2013, 01:21:53 PM »
I'm looking for a good recipe for a hefeweizen with a distinct orange taste. I know this is one of the least popular homebrews but I really want to make a refreshing summer beer that I can enjoy with my friends. I tried a homebrewed hefe that my friend made from extract but it tasted rather plain. I'm wondering if I can add orange peals, or even a natural orange extract, to give it more flavor. If so, when would be best to make these additions and how much?

BTW, this will be my 3rd batch, so I'm still fairly new to this. Thanks!
