Bitter Orange Peel - Approx. 1 oz (28 g)
Bitter Orange Peel is usually added during the final stages of the boil just like most brewing spices. A pack of 1 ounce (28 grams) will lend a pronounced orange flavour and aroma to a standard 5 gallon batch.
You can use the entire pack for a strong citrus punch and add coriander for even more spiciness typically found in traditional Belgian ales. Or you can add a smaller amount for a slight fruity hint where it’s needed.
The Bitter Orange Peel will contribute slight bitterness and tartness to your beer as well, so take this into account when designing the recipe.
|Description:||When it's time to brew that tasty Belgian witbier, having a pack of Bitter Orange Peel is certainly a must. Traditionally used by Belgian brewers, this spice has rapidly grown into an ingredient that many modern homebrewers use in a broad range of styles with great results.
Bitter Orange Peel delivers the distinct orange flavour, aroma and slight tartness that is associated with witbiers and certain other Belgian beer styles. In contrast to sweet orange, which is the traditional orange fruit you"ll find in just any supermarket, bitter orange is mainly used for producing aromatic oils and spices due to its pronounced orange fruit character.
