    *) Isn’t that a little too much yeast? Maybe reduce to 12g (~3%) and increase bulk fermentation to about 45 minutes? -Nils

  1. Thank you so much. I have all the ingredients listed available except for the candied peel but I do have organic lemons and oranges and it will be easy to make candied peel. I’ll follow your suggestion and reduce the yeast and increase the bulk fermentation time.

  2. Sounds good! Never made the candied peel myself, always bought it packaged. Great idea.
