beginner question fruiting my home brew...Please h
Hey there,

I read to never add fruit to a boil. Well, prior to reading up I went ahead 3 sliced oranges to a boiled in about 2 cups of water with a little sugar to my secondary after straining it to get just the juice. I did the same with one orange and my priming sugar before bottling my brew. I am now concerned about pectins have being activated and the little bit of pulp from the oranges making my brew have an off/sour flavor. I'd like to know what input one might have. Do you think I will have a bad turnout?

P.s. I am brewing a batch of Texas blond ale

What's the total batch volume? You might get haze from the pectin but it won't affect the taste much. You could use gelatin if you're worried about the haze.

Im brewing a five gallon batch. Thanks for the advice. I'll give you the scope on how every thing went, when I pop open the first cold one.
