Default Partial - Lemon Lime beer Help

Hey guys I want to make a lemon lime beer. I am aiming for a light refreshing summer beer I want to start with a blue moon clone from BierMuncher. I know you would remove the coriander and orange peel. Does anyone have any ideas for the lemon and lime flavorings and the hops for a 5gal batch.


3.00 lb Extra Light Dry Extract (3.0 SRM)
1.00 lb Wheat Dry Extract (8.0 SRM)
2.00 lb Wheat, Flaked (1.6 SRM)

1.49 oz Goldings, East Kent [5.00%] (60 min)

0.75 oz Coriander Seed (Boil 10.0 min) Misc
0.75 oz Orange Peel, Bitter (Boil 10.0 min) Misc

1 Pkgs Belgian Witbier (Wyeast #3944 or White Labs WLP400)

Add lemon and lime zest at flameout.

Hmm... I'm not a big fan of wits so if I were making a lemon-lime beer, I'd probably use something like Northern Brewer's Patersbier as a base beer. I'd add fresh-squeezed lemon juice to the cooled wort before pitching the yeast at a rate of 1/2 lemon per gallon of wort. Then after primary fermentation is complete, I'd make a homemade teabag with lemon and lime zest, and throw that into secondary, and rack the beer onto it. Age to taste. I"d probably have to experiment some to figure out the proper amounts.

Default posting guidelines

Quote:
When posting a recipe to the database please try and follow the simple guidelines listed below. This will help ensure that the HomebrewTalk.com recipe database is a valuable resource for brewers containing only quality, proven recipes.

If you want to post a recipe that has not yet been brewed or you are seeking help, please use the Recipes/Ingredients forum.
Complete as many fields as you can. Recipes with more detail will be easier for others to brew.
Provide as much information as you can. If it is an all-grain recipe, be sure to include all mash steps and temperatures.
A picture is worth 1000 words. This isn't required, but if you can, post a picture of your beer.
Brewing software files. Also not required, however you can attach a file from your favourite software program to the recipe. This makes it easier for fellow brewers to obtain your recipe. If possible try and post in BeerXML format as not everyone has the same software.
If you see any recipes that have been posted that do not meet the criteria above, please PM a mod or use the report post button to let us know so we can move it.
Wrong forum for asking questions.

Don't add juice, add zest. I say the zest of two whole lemons and limes at flame out and then steep some zest in vodka for the duration of primary to make an extract. If it's needed, add some of it at bottling or kegging time.
