Was wondering if anyone has a fruit puree distributer who has aseptic mandarin orange puree? I want to brew a mandarin orange hefeweizen this summer and I am having a hard time finding this fruit. I have tried Oregon Fruit Products and Juice Products Unlimited.
Try contacting the good folks at the Lang Creek Brewery in Marion, Montana. They have been producing a mandarin orange beer for quite a while now. John Campbell is their brewmaster and might be able to point you in the right direction.
Luck to ya'
There's a company in Lansing, MI called Lorann Oils that has a natural orange flavor oil(along with every other flavor imaginable). I've never used it, but it might work. Their number is 800-862-8620
