Notes

Adding Blood Oranges direct to Primary for 14 days (not minutes) on Brew day. Add fruit just as Fermentation is slowing down, usually 2 days after pitching yeast.

I peel and puree the Blood Oranges in a sanitized blender. I sanitize the blender and my hands while handling the fruit like I do my fermenters, using StarSan.

When you say add your fruit to primary, how did you do this? Did you sterilise in any way? Mash the fruit, juice, chop, or food process it? Thanks in advance!

Wow, this a very late response to this question, sorry!

No zest or anything? All the flavor was from the pureed oranges?
