Blood Orange
« on: January 23, 2016, 08:28:01 AM »
Hey everyone, I'm going to try using Blood Orange for the first time, but not sure how to add it. It's going to be for a Saison, and I was thinking of adding the juice late in the boil. Good/bad idea? How much and when should I add it? With the grain bill alone, according to BeerSmith, I'm in the middle of the recommended OG, so I figure I have some room for fermentables. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

I would throw some zest in at the end of the boil and add juice after a week or so in the fermenter. If you are legging you could add juice directly to the keg too.
On Tap/Bottled:                       
Summer Ale / XPA #6 / Spiced Baltic Porter / Pale Lager
              
Fermenting: Saison Claire
Up Next: marzen, pumpkin munich brown

Check out Drew's recipe in Experimental Homebrewing. I think it's called Saison Sangreal. With French saison.

I'm going to second using the zest at the end of the boil and the juice in the secondary. I've done it in both a tripel and a saison, and I really like how it works. Remember to freeze the juice first, which effectively sanitizes it, before thawing and adding it to the fermenter.

You might want to consider the blood orange candi syrup from Cascade Candi Syrup company.

If the tart cherry candi syrup that I bought is any indication it probably is.

"Ingredients: Alcohol, water, and natural blood orange flavor", so yes, but why would you do that? It's the season!

I had to look that one up, and now I feel your pain. There is nothing better than fresh Sicilian blood oranges.
