Orange Hefeweizen

Recommended Posts

Was looking to make an orange hefe tonight and wanted to get any thoughts or comments on such a recipe. Sounds like a good idea? Do you think the orange will take away from the hefe? Things like that.

I was thinking to follow the mr beer recipe but include some coriander and orange peel (mccormicks) as well.

Thoughts or comments? Thanks everyone.

Not sure if orange is appropriate for Hefe - it's more of a Belgian Wit thing... I like my hefeweizens super simple, just 2.5-3# of Wheat DME, 1/2 oz of noble hops (Hallertau or such), and Weihenstephaner Yeast (Wyeast 3068). Then, you can add a slice of orange in the glass if you like that kind of thing.

But it's your beer, so it's your call. I'd just be afraid that yeast will cover up or clash with orange/coriander.
