I just got my first harvest of mandarin oranges from my tree and I want to make mead with it. I have a couple of questions, but everything I find about cuties/oranges is for JAOM. First off, do I need to peel them? I know pith is supposed to add a bitterness to mead, but mandarins have almost no pith compared to oranges. If they do need to be peeled, how much zest should I add with the fruit? Secondly, I am assuming that with citrus I probably need to to add it to the secondary, but if I go the no peels route I was wondering if zest should go in the primary or in the secondary with the fruit.
