Default Extract - Blonde Lime

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Safale US-05
Yeast Starter: nope
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: nope
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: No idea
Final Gravity: No idea
Boiling Time (Minutes): 40
Color: Light Blonde
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7
Additional Fermentation: No
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14
Tasting Notes: Light and crisp. The lime works perfect with it.

Ingredients:

1 Can (3.3lbs) Of Muntonts Extra Light Liquid Extract
2 lbs of dry rice extract/rice syrup solids
NO HOPS!!!
8oz of Crytsal Malt 10L to steep for 20-30m minutes between 160-170 farenheit
1 tablespoon of irish moss for last ten minutes of boil
2-4 limes

Boil for 40 minutes with 1 gallon of water. Pitch yeast between 68-78 degrees farenheit only!

About 3 weeks before you bottle this beer you need to take some vodka and ur 2-4 limes to make the lime extract. Cut one lime into four piece and seperate the lime peel from the zest. Do this with all the limes. Take two seperate jars (mason jars work fine) and add the zest to one and the lime peel to the other. Fill up each jar with the vodka until it reaches 4 ounces. Cover the jars with the mason jar lids or seran wrap and let it sit for 2 weeks. After the first week take a fork and open up the lime zest jar and crush the limes up and then cover again. On the second week mix both jars together into a seperate jar it should add up to 8 ounces. Add just a couple pieces of zest and lime peel to this jar. Let it sit for a week or until you bottle and add to the bottling bucket before bottling.

Ferment at room temp in primary for 7 days and secondary for 14 days. Carbonate with 3/4 cup corn sugar or 5oz of priming sugar and don't forget to add the lime extract

Default How does it taste?


Can you liken this beer to anything else? Anyone else give it a try?

Definitely sounds interesting.

Have you noticed a shortened shelf life from the lack of hops or any other negative effects?

Also I'm a bit confused on the lime extract process.

Can you explain to me what you mean by zest and peel? I've always considered them the same.


"After the first week take a fork and open up the lime zest jar and crush the limes up and then cover again."


You are adding the actual lime fruit to the jar with the zest?

Are you letting these jars sit at room temperature or do you keep them in the fridge?

Did you strain this mix before adding to the bottling bucket or do you add it all?

Thanks!

I store the beer in the frdge after 3 weeks of room temp conditioning and havent noticed reduced shelf life.

The peel is the hard outer shell and the zest is the middle squishy part. I keep them sitting in the fridge and yes i strain the mix

I tried a similar beer except I used Minute Maid Limeade in the bottling bucket. I was thinking of using real limes next time. I am also confused about the peel vs. zest thing. The zest is just the outside of the peel, only the green part and none of the white. Usually you scrape it with a zester to remove only the green part of the peel and it comes off in shavings. Can you post any pics of your process, that might help.

I think he means "flesh", not "zest"?
