Bitter orange

Unread post by mashy »

I want to use bitter orange in a hop forward ale.

Any thoughts on weights and when? I am currently thinking 10g at flameout in 23l.

25 gr ground in spice mill last ten minutes of boil works very well in a Wit.

Greg Hughes recommends 25g in his Blegian Wit recipe.
