For my first brew not using a kit I am making an Orange American Wheat. It was very similar to the American Wheat I brewed but I added two oranges worth of zest at primary. My brew used two cans of wheat extract, cascade hops, and I am trying out white lab’s hefeweizen yeast. I cooled the wort to 85 degrees and took an initial specific gravity of 1.045 when I added the yeast, then added the orange zest. This is my first time playing around with not using a kit so hopefully it will turn out well. I am looking into doing a full grain brew in the near future, hopefully by the end of the semester.
