There is a distinct lemon taste as you take a sip. Does anyone know if they are adding lemon zest or something along those lines?

I assume that comes from the hops. Nothing on the website says anything about lemon. I have not had an alpine spring this year yet, but I hope to score some to compare to mine when it is done. Mine is still in the primary so were looking at another 6-8 weeks.

This as close as I could come up with inline to the website. Dry hopping gives you the bright citrus and spicy hop notes.
Will be brewing this weekend with a 8 week lager.

Shadows69: you brewed this last time with pilsner yeast didn't you? Why not try using kolsch this time to compare?

No I used the same lager yeast wlp800. Only reason I'm using it again because this will be the last lager of the season for me. In 10 weeks it will be to warm to lager as I do it in my basement.

What kind of temps are you getting for lagering? And how long are you allowing for the lagering?

48 to 52 degrees in primary for 10 days. Rest at 65 for 24 to 48 hours. Down to 37 to 32 depending on basement temp for 8 weeks. This will be my ninth lager for this year. I'm up one from last year.

I was just thinking it takes a lot longer to dry a lager than an ale. So I'm going to dry hop in week 4 since I do an 8 week plus lager. Others might dry hop right off the bat if only doing it for 4 weeks.
