This recipe is not for the traditionalists. It has an extreme lemon flavor, that surprisingly you can't get enough of, but still feels like a hefe. Its another one of my more popular brews that has to be around all year. It is particularly hot with my friends that don't usually drink beer.

This looks great! Did the acidity have any effect on fermentation?

No adverse effects, it fermented pretty messy though. Planning on brewing this up again in the next couple of weeks.

I've never had porch rocker, but it's a safe assumption that this is way beyond that. This stuff made me pucker every time. But I loved it!!
