    I have added a 454g jar to a few brews just to try and give that slight citrus taste to especially english style beers. It does add a slight taste or orange but never used more than that amount

    Could you get a sour by using lemon marmalade and maybe Saison yeast?

    Don't waste your time and money with Mandarina Bavaria hops. I found them very disappointing. Might be alright for a pils or very pale ale, but easily overwhelmed.

    Already been the AA and you are spot on very muted flavour in Mandarina as you say it would really have to be in a light beer with no crystal to detect it as you say it would be ok in lagers/pseudo but on its own or the dominant hop as it would get swamped by anything else

    I've added a jar, 454g, of Aldi's cheapest 27p marmalade to a few Wherry kits and also a wheat beer. Adds a subtle orange and bitter note which I like enough to repeat. The wheat beer also used a Hartley's orange jelly pack which added quite a bit of flavour and is also to my taste. I've done a blackcurrant jam and liquorice stout with Bramling X hops which was really good. A version of that with a jelly pack has turned out less well.

    I added 900g of marmalade to a dark Porter / Stout beer and it was very good. Marmalade was made from a kit I picked up in Lakeland the last time I was dragged around the kitchen shop in Bowness on Windermere.

    Also added around half that to a Belgian Wit in lieu of Orange peel with good results.

    Prima Donna hops give a distinct marmalade flavour.
    Tescos finest orange blossom honey also gives an orangey zing to a brew.
    Currently sat here with a tankard of orange blossom honey ale. Yummm...

    Interesting. I normally bung some golden syrup in my bitters. I think next time I might try marmalade.

    Sounds lovely. Did you intend First Gold rather than EKG in view of your earlier post?

    I would have used it for the 0m addition but I'd run out of it (homegrowm) when I made this brew. Don't think the orange peel had much effect either. Bit of an experiment, as was not having an 80m hop addition. I was going for a hopefully floral effect from the EKG to add to the orange from the honey.
    Hang on a minute, it's 11.30 already so I'll just have another one to double check.

    Sounds very tasty, I liked tesco's orange blossom honey in mead so shoudl give this one a go at some stage.

    That recipe is extremely close to my bitter recipe now that I've converted it to metric. Seems you're using UK gallons so it's an 18L batch?

    The orange blossom honey sounds even better than marmalade. It'll be a simple matter of swapping the Golden Syrup for honey I think

    They work well in a witbier but I agree they are subtle

    Yes, 18L, though I often get my volumes wrong and end up with nearer 20L. Downside, slightly weaker beer, upside, more bottles!
    Appologies also for the mixed imperial/metric measures - our big kitchen scales are in ounces, small ones (best for hops) are in both but the metric is easier to measure (who wants to weigh out 7/8 of an ounce?)

    It's ok, I use ounces when baking, especially with the kids as it's easier for them to count. I saw the hops in grams but the spilt units didn't actually occur to me. :-)

    Don't see a problem with weighing out 14 drams on the old alchemy balance.
