Orange Cream Wheat

Light American Wheat Ale or Lager with Yeast - All Grain

Recipe Description

An attempt to emulate the Orange Blossom brewed by Papago Brewery in Scottsdale AZ.

EDIT: I am drinking my modified recipe now, and its good. It is tart and creamy with good body but no haze. I think next time instead of using orange peel from the brew store, I'll do orange zest from fresh oranges. Otherwise, I cant think of a way to improve it.
