Description

Are you looking for a nice, crisp, and cool beer for the summer heat? Morebeer! has got you covered.

This Belgian starts with a crisp pilsner base to build from and then it adds the floral, spiciness of Helga hops during the boil. To top it all off the beer has an interesting citrus back ground flavor from the blood oranges to make it the perfect thirst quencher for a hot summer day.  You can either choose a neutral yeast like Giga Nor Cal or you can choose from various Belgian Strains that will add various degrees of clove/banana flavor to the beer. If you know you like interesting Belgian beers opt for a Belgian strain. If you are thinking general crowd pleaser then go with Giga Nor Cal or White Labs California.

Recipe includes 1lb of Belgian Style Blood Orange Candi Syrup that is made in the USA from 100% cane sugar. As the reviews note the Blood Orange flavor is not overwhelming but does add a background flavor. We suggest you aso read the five star reviews for the Blood Orange Candi Sugar itself. It is always a fine line between having your beer have an artificial fruit flavor that jumps out of the glass versus a natural flavor that is blended into the beeer itself.  We think the latter is the case. If you think you want a more pronounced orange flavor purchase an additional 1lb of Blood Orange Candi Sugar - of course you are also adding residual alcohol as well. Beware this is an easy drinking beer that can sneek up on you!  

For the greatest flavor impact add the Blood Orange Candi Sugar directly to the fermenter after high krausen has passed, or roughly 3 days into active fermentation.  

Get your kit today and make a nice light beer that is easy to drink by the pool.

Please Note: In order to better serve our customers, we are now offering our extract recipe kits with either Liquid Malt Extract (LME) or Dried Malt Extract (DME). The majority of our DME kits were converted from the LME version, which is why you may notice slight variances in the extract names and quantities on your recipe sheet. You may also find that your Specific Gravity and ABV% are slightly higher if you choose DME. Whether LME or DME, add all extracts provided according to the recipe sheet.

Sounded Good!
Wasn't to happy with the out come of this one. Thought there would have been more of a Blood Orange flavor, nothing! If i ever do this one again, I'll probably get double of the candy syrup.

High hopes, but didn't live up
I liked the way this kit sounded, and I hoped for a brew that was a little different with the blood orange candy syrup. But this did not fit the bill. It is not that it is not drinkable, but it is nothing special. With all the other kits I have done, I get great comments from friends who try my homebrew, but not this recipe. There is no orange flavor at all, and it did not live up to my hopes for a unique tasty brew.
