Remember, it's zest, not peel. Just the outer yellow layer, no white pith! I normally add it to the boil with 5 minutes to go. With my last batch, I steeped it in everclear for a few weeks, and poured it into the keg...way too lemony! I quite liked the flavor I got this way, but I'd cut the amount way down if I tried it again...a little goes a long way, and the beer should just have a slight hint of lemon.
The final Cascade addition goes in at flame out. I leave my hop bag in the kettle while chilling.
