Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

Forgot to add Orange Peel
I cannot believe it, but I forgot to add orange peel to my wit. How many wits have a brewed, sweet lord how could I forget and to make matters worse I only remembered that I forgot today, two days post brew. I added coriander, ginger root, black pepper at flame out and let it steep for about 2o minutes before chilling. But I forgot the orange peel, duh. I was thinking boiling up some orange peel with some water and dumping it into the primary, would this work? Normally I would add it at the secondary stage but I don't use a secondary with my wits, straight from the primary to the keg

Should be fine, boil/steep/strain and add the liquid to taste at kegging.

A few friends and I brewed a dark saison a few years ago and didn't realize that we forgot the orange peel until we found it while cleaning up.

I routinely "dry hop" with orange peel, so you can do that or your plan of a brief boil would be fine as well.

I decided to grate and boil the orange peel to sanitize, I them dropped it into the primary after High Krausen had passed, I don't really want that in the keg. I once dry hopped with whole hop flowers in the keg and ended up having to disassemble to outflow poppit to clear the blockages, again and again and again

I use a hop sock in the keg. But your method sounds like a winner.
