Q: Could you make this kit available all grain and WITHOUT the blood orange? I have a lot of frozen blood orange juice and pulp from my own trees and would like to try your recipe but prefer all-grain brewing.
A: the kit would include the pulp as shipped, but using the recipe sheet you can order the hops grains and other items a la carte to omit the blood orange if needed
Q: The included instructions leave a few questions.
-The Hop & Additive Schedule lists the Blood Orange Puree as an "additive" and says "Add to Secondary", this is Secondary Fermentation, Correct?
-Is any Irish moss or Whirlfloc suggested?
-For secondary fermentation what is the suggested temperature?
-Is priming sugar (and how much) necessary for bottling and how long should bottles be left to carbonate at what temperature?
A: PEr the listing for the time on the schedule of additions, the blood orange puree is added into the secondary. The secondary fermentation temp would be kept the same as the primary temp, based off of the manufacturer specs for the yeast you chose to use on this batch. We do not lit this temp, as many different yeasts can be used, and defer to the yeast suppliers recommendations for best temp ranges. Irish moss or whirl flock can be used, but as this is a witbier that will have a haze to it by design and style guidelines, is an optional step. Priming sugar of some sort would always be needed if the user intends to bottle, but would not be needed in the case of force carbonation in a keg. Bottle carbonation typically takes place within 2-3 weeks of bottle date
Q: can you use dry yeast?
A: while the best outcome would come from using White labs 400 for this batch, the T-58 from Fermentis would be the best dry yeast option if needed
Q: Should I be stirring the puree in to the secondary or just pour?
A: gentle stirring of the puree will help blend it together
Q: How can I get notification when this is available again? I tried putting it in a wish list but it wouldn't let me. Thnx
A: This was a limited time only kit. We may make it available again at some point but not in the foreseeable future.
Q: Do you have this available still in your store? Thanks!
A: Supplies are very limited right now! Call before you head in to double check if we still have this available. Cheers!
Q: Does the blood orange puree ship well in high temps? Should an ice pack be requested?
A: The blood orange Puree is canned, and is stable to ship in warmer or cooler temps.
Q: How much of the Blood Orange Puree is used in the recipe?
A: 49 oz of Blood Orange Puree is used in this recipe. Have a great day. Thanks!
Q: Can this beer be lagered?
A: This beer can be put through the lagering process(Cold storage during secondary fermentation) but will cause a slight change in the flavor profile given by the yeast, if using the recommended Wit yeast that is suggested. These strains typically ferment best in the mid 60's to mid 70's and will not perform as well at lower temps.
Q: Is the blood orange purée 100 percent orange?
A: Thanks for the question, David. Yes, the Blood Orange Puree is 100% Blood Oranges and does not contain any additives or preservatives. Cheers!

Q: Is this recipe for extract brewing?
A: Yes, this is an extract recipe.
Q: What comes in the kit? Can you post or send me the instructions? I want to see which hops you are using so I can get a feel for how dark this beer will turn out. Or you can just tell me!
