Makes more sense now, thanks man. When I was making a BW, I was told to only use the zest of an orange and make sure not to get any of the white part of the peel. I like your procedure and might have to try that for a lime brew next time.

So are you not adding Hops because you want to taste the lime flavor or because you want to limit bitterness of the beer. Or am I missing something completly ( I am as new to this as can be - I am gonna make my first Brew in the Next Week )

Jed - Welcome to HBT, so much for your free time, it will now be occupied with hours of reading HBT. You hit the nail right of the head. In a beer like this you are more interested in having the fruit flavor dominate and not the hops. At least I do that is. There are plenty of other beer styles in which you can add a ton of hops for bitterness, flavor, and aroma. Use the search function on the site or post a new thread if you have any questions before you start cooking (or even while you are cooking you can get some answers if necessary). Good luck!

what is the theory behind separating the peel and the flesh into different jars?

I just finished a lime extract for a Weiss beer, which is conditioning right now. I made the lime extract from about 18 limes. The green part of the peel contains the oils which I wanted and I also wanted the juice, but not the citric acid.

In the peel jar, I added Everclear, which worked in just a few days. Once the liquid is a dark green, heat the jar up to about 170 to evaporate the alcohol. I did this about 4 or 5 times just to make sure.

In the juice jar, I added some sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) to reduce the citric acid. I had to play around to figure out a good amount. I think I used about a 1/2 to 3/4 tsp for about 16 oz. After a week to a week and a half in the fridge, the liquid separates from the pulp and the sodium bicarbonate, which sink to the bottom.

After primary was complete, poured both jars into empty secondary and racked beer onto the extract. Overall, I used about 20 oz or so of both juice & peel extract. Turned out great!
