Notes

Put peels & spice into muslin bag @ 10 mins, then steep in fermenter for 3 days

  • Added a second round of fruit peels (3 oz) - (2) chopped tangerine peels, orange zest & grapefruit zest at time of dry hop

    Brewed on 7/2 - added dry hops on 7/5 for 3-5 days as fermentation slows (use gravity readings)
    • gravity was below 1.020

      >>Ended up with 5.0 gal in fermenter - volumes were low from the mash (not sure what happened)<<
