Notes

In the brew pot add honey,corn sugar, 2 Temple orange peels, and 1 1/2 gallons water.Bring to a slow boil. As soon as boil starts, scoop out orange peel. Continue a slow boil for 30 minutes, skimming any "foam" that forms on the surface. After 30 minutes add 1tsp Irish Moss, continue to slow boil for 15 minutes. Add to primary and bring volume up to 5 gallons. Rehydrate 1 package of "Red Star Pasteur Champagne Yeast". Pitch yeast when temperature of must is 65F-75F. Secondary rack when necessary.
This is my late Fathers recipe. It has won many awards, both in the SCA and in the mundane world. We just opened the last bottle, 20 years old by the way, and it is wonderful! Hope you have fun brewing this one.
