They're hitting the stores around here. I think I'll stock up to juice and freeze for several things. Any thoughts on using the juice in an Am Wheat or Wit (as in how much and when)?

At some point I was playing with the idea of a lemon wheat. I think I actually brewed a couple (with zest and/or juice) and I may have added that at flameout. What I got was a beer that had a muted citrus flavor. It was fine but not what I envisioned. For future batches I ended just brewing the wheat beer by itself and ended up making a beer that you could drink by itself or squeeze a lemon wedge into it when you tap it if you wanted that fresh citrus flavor. Not sure if that translates to the oranges or not. I could see a beer with 50% 2-row, 50% wheat, just one clean hop addition at the start of the boil to get the beer to 20-25 IBUs and made with a clean yeast like 1056 or even 2112 (okay, throw 1450 in there too ) and drink it by itself or squeeze a wedge of orange into it when you tap it.

You could make a blue moon clone and call it blood moon.
