These were peeled with a potato peeler so none of the white pith would be in the primary.1 - lemon1 - lime2 - tangerines2 - cara cara oranges1 - naval orangeChopped raisins and cinnimon sticks. Initial OG was off the charts. Based on diluting it with 1 part water and 1 part mead which read 16 I think it was close to 32 Brix.
