Recipe of the month - Miami Weiss

Spring has sprung and its time to start brewing for summer. One of the easiest and rewarding beers to make must be a Weiss Beer. I always like to add some kind of fruit to my Weiss beers, this beer has the zest of one orange added for a sweet and citrusy aroma (If orange is not your thing you can simply omit the zest). 

This beer is ready to drink as soon as its carbonated. It will peak at 1 to 2 months. Serve at 4oC
