Aeniph, If you'd like a lime component in your next batch, may I suggest that you do a lemon-lime mix. Many of those who've made a straight lime batch didn't like it as well, the lime seems to be a little over powering. A good balance seems to be 1/3 lime and 2/3 lemon. This still produces a pretty solid like flavor without the bitterness. The same people that make Realemon in bottles make a lime product too. The bottles are a little smaller. I think it's called Realime.
