I brewed a stout, recently. When bottling some of it, I added some candied orange peel both for sugars and flavor. Sure enough, it did the carbonation job adequately, and the flavor's nice and mellow.
A second test batch has candied orange peel *and* cognac barrel chips. Not getting a lot of the cognac in this, but still orange. I'll have to add more chips to the bigger batch...
Sounds tasty. Cambridge Beer Festival is coming up in a few weeks. @TheAntiM is coming over from the States for it. (We'll do some other things, too;-)
@AspiringLuddite @maeleoin But, you know, beer is where it all begins.
Medievalists and Medieval-adjacent. Sort-of.
