Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 1 answerAre the peels sterilized?BEST ANSWER: They are probably fine to use as they are, but we'll usually toss them in at the end of a boil, or a brewer could soak them in vodka for a day or two and add them into the secondary vessel. This is always a safe way to sterilize a fruit-peel or spice addition, to be certain it's not going to add anything unwanted to a beer. When this is done, some of the flavor will be in the vodka, so add in the peels and the small amount of vodka when you make the addition to the carboy. -Mike W, Midwest Supplies
