Keg additions

(1/1)

dee:
I want to add some citrus zest, hops and spices to an American Wheat that I just kegged up.  I dry hop in the keg all of the time but I'm a little concerned about using zest.  What sanitation precautions should I take with the fruit zest and dry spices?

mnstorm99:
Not sure with the spicwes...but you could dip citus rind in a bit of vodka before adding it.  I would guess the spices will be ok, but orange or lemon rind will have quite a few nasties on it.

tom:
If you haven't made this recipe before I would recommend steeping the spices and zest in vodka for a week or two and then adding the liquid to taste.
