Has anyone tried making this with either Belgian Wit yeast or US-05 dry yeast and was pleased with the results?

I moved my lemon coriander Weiss to the secondary last night after 2 weeks in the primary. Put 1.6 oz lemon zest from 3 lemons soaked in vodka into the secondary and racked on top of it. I tasted it and the clove is there but very mellow which I was hoping for, not much banana thankfully, I think that's because o kept my germ temps in the upper 60's.

I plan to let it sit for a week and ill taste a sample, if I want more lemon aroma/taste I plan to let it sit for an additional week. If its good I'm going to bottle it and let it condition for a coulple weeks and then enjoy

Chilling down 5.5 gallons of this right now. I used 7 lbs of 2-row to compensate for the low efficiency of my system and 2.25 oz of lemon zest because that's what I got from 5 lemons. Also gonna ferment with a 1L starter of 1056 around 60 F to highlight the hops and lemon. It's looks and smells good so far.

Oh man, I forgot about making this. I bottled it two weeks ago, I tried one last night and holy smokes this might be my favorite beer! I of course made a few changes to the recipe...

For starters I used 7lbs of 2row
2lbs flaked corn
1lb cara-pils
and half pound of caramel 60

I then did a 60 min boil and used a full "hopshot" never used it before but it turned out wonderful,
1on cascade at 15 and flame out!

thank you for this recipe!

Today I did this recipe. It's my firs AG, and it was a lot of fun for me. It was also the first brew I did by myself. I normally brew with a buddy, but he had to work, so it was on me if we wanted this beer by summer. I'll let you guys know how this turns out for me, not like it matters, we'll drink it good bad or ugly...

Just made a 10 gallon batch yesterday. Had about one ounce of lemon, and had to substitute Columbus for the centennial... It tastes great in the samples, hit an OG of 1.044. Can't wait to try this, should be drinkable before the cool weather arrives...

Great recipe! I had one small problem though, I did a ten gallon batch and used the zest off 7 lemons and after carbing it for the last two days I get a very slight lemon taste at the end but I was expecting more. I'm going to try and dry hop with another ounce of zest in vodka and see how that turns out.

Awesome recipe! I upped the 2-row a little with what I had laying around and it turned out great. Just a hint of citrus. SWMBO has requested a second batch, with an ounce of Citra Dry Hop! Going to be working this one in the coming weeks!

Default Brewed a batch of this last night


Brewed a batch last night using pretty much exact recepie as posted. Zested three large lemons with a potato peeler. Got just over 2oz of zest. This is my fifth brew ever. In less than 2 months I have been a brewing fool.

It is currently Fermenting in the primary at 62ish degrees. I can't wait to try it!

Thanks to Lars for the original post and all the comments who gave suggestions along the way.
