I would, there can be a bit of bitterness in the skin.

For anyone interested, I racked this beast to the secondary today. I've posted a picture in the picture forum HERE.

The hydro sample was fantabulous.

Oh, and I decided against 5lbs of cukes. I used 3lbs of unpeeled, unseeded cucumbers. I, then, seeded and peeled them so the actually weight is unknown.

for sure dude...it's going to be a couple of weeks (10 days minimum) before I pull it from the 2nd-ary.

But I'll let you know... (my secondary has a spigot, so I may steal some samples...)

This sounds really good for a hot summer cookout. This is definitely my next beer. I can't wait to hear how it turns out being carbed

Awesome! This is definitely my best beer to date. I would be very excited to hear how yours turns out!

Also, let me know if you make any changes to that recipe, I'd be interested to see what you come up with.

Cheers!

This beer sounds great. After you've had a chance to carb and taste "proper" definatly post in the recipe section.

I'm curious to know if you detect any honey flavor, and if no, do you think more light DME or sugar would suffice? Do you think having honey flavor in there would be a detriment?
I have used honey a couple times, and only detected any actual honey flavor once, so I'm curious as to your reaction.
