UPDATE 6/12/17: added 3# blood orange puree to one of the carboys

UPDATE 6/29/17: kegged the straight wheat beer, clocked in at 1.007 (7% ABV) and DELICIOUS: Sweet, full-bodied, lots of bubble gum, a little banana and a hint of clove.  Also kegged the blood orange wheat beer: nose is a bit boozy, beer is a bit thinner and more muted but a bit more complex. Where the straight-up wheat beer has esthers and phenols forward, this is more subtle and complex. YUM.
