The fruit of the Citrus sinensis is considered a sweet orange, unlike that of the Citrus aurantium, considered a bitter orange.  These orange peels add the perfect amount of citrus sweetness to your brew or distillate. 

The bitter orange frequently used in gin sometimes goes by “bitter orange” or “Seville Orange” or "Sour Orange".  However distillers and brewers can also use sweet oranges yet their rinds have fewer oils and therefore don’t impart as much orange flavour.

Use bitter orange peel for a pleasant citrusy character and sweet orange peel for intense orange flavor.

Dosage Guidance for Belgian Witbiers:

A common mistake many brewers make when first attempting this style is going overboard on the addition of spices.  There are two basic times to add spices to a beer: during the boil or post fermentation.

The best technique for adding spices to witbier is a combination of methods. Add them late in the boil, but use restraint. Start out with an amount you know will not be overwhelming. If it turns out the spicing wasn’t enough, you can always bump it up by boiling some spices in a little water and adding them in, or adding dry spices post fermentation.

Use bitter orange peel for a pleasant citrusy character and sweet orange peel for intense orange flavor. Regardless which you choose, start small and adjust your recipe to taste.

Home Brewers:
Add 0.5 - 1.0 ounce (14–28 grams) of dried orange peel 5 to 15 minutes before the end of the boil, or steep in hot water for 10 minutes and add to the secondary for 19 Litre / US 5 Gallon Batch Sizes. 

Craft Brewers:
Add 70-140 grams of dried orange peel 5 mins from end of boil, or steep in hot water for 10 minutes and add to the secondary per 1 hL (100 Litres) for Craft Brewers.
