citrus juice

(1/2) > >>

Hey All. Are there any concerns when adding juice from oranges, lemons, limes, etc near the end of the boil? I am not sure if the acidity would mess anything up during the fermentation or with the finished beer.

I would just add the zest from the peels of the citrus fruit.  FWIW, zest from a dozen limes is 3 oz.  I would worry about acidity.

If you add it to the boil, there may not be much left in the finished beer.

Jimmy K:
I've seen recipes using juiced oranges.  It's possible you could lower the pH too much with lemons or limes, but I think that would be a LOT of juice.  The peels have more flavor though in the finished beer.

Thanks All. I am definitely planning on using the zest with 5 mins remaining but thought about throwing in some juice as well. Sounds like I should just stick with the zest.
