I currently have a Saison sitting in the secondary fermenter, and now I wanted to add some fresh Tangerines to it as I used some tangerine peel earlier during the brew and I think it will give it a nice pop. I have been doing some research and I have found a lot of things saying to sanitize the fruit before adding to prevent contamination, because the outside peel of the fruit may contain bacteria or wild yeast.
First do I need to worry about this if I peel the Tangerines and just use the insides? If I do still need to sanitize can I simply pour sanitizing solution over the peeled tangerines? I know there are more methods, but I haven't seen a lot involving tangerines. I am trying to avoid boiling them because of the release of pectin.
Also if you guys have any suggestions or input, I'm all ears. Cheers!
