Default using lemon/lime extract

I was thinking that I like drinking a Corona with lemon or lime in it. And I like lemon and lime flavored beverages. Has anyone made a beer using lemon/lime extract or lemon/lime juice? I want to try this but have no experience with extracts as in when to add them and how much. I was thinking maybe 1/2 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice at the end of the boil? What would the lemon extract equivilent be? Need some guidance here!

This time a year there is at least one thread on the topic a week. They are usually short lived, because I think other than me, there has only been a hand full who have done. There's a couple threads below in the "similar threads" box. including it looks like one recipe .

I've posted mine a few times. Here's the link to my recipe.

And that is from this thread http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/lime...10/#post854185

Which if I recall was mostly conjecture (not many people who actually brewed with lime) a handful of bud bashers, and a couple of us who have had experience.

Revvy - I looked at your thread and this looks like what I want to make. I don't do AG (yet) so I'll try to adapt it for extract. Perhaps my Cream Ale recipe. I also will double what you put in like you suggested in the post. In fact, I might do the same quantity of lime that you tried and add equal parts of lemon. I am hoping for a nice, crisp summer brew that could go nicely with sitting on the porch. I like the idea of "dry-zesting" too.

Thanks!
