I would stay away from lemon peels and go with pure juice if you want more lemon zest. I used orange peels in a beer I made once and it came out tasting like a wet dog. Had to dump it.

I just recently polished off a keg of a grapefruit ipa I did with grapefruit zest in boil and peel in the keg for a day... Probably most solid beer so far. I gave it to a guy a manager at a morebeer store room and he said he would have rated it 38-39, higher if the grapefruit wasnt as prominent as it was.
It is hard to get the strong citrus flavor I want sometimes without the peel is all I am saying.
I wonder why it came out tasting that wet dog way...

Guessing the peels of the two in question hold different amounts of zestyness

My new batch seem to slow and I just gave it a quick spin back to bubbling again the EH lemonade It is a hard batch but well worth it has become a favorite long side my dos esquis

I like to put jalapenos in my lemonade and let it sit for a day or two before I drink it, I searched online to see if anyone else does this since it was just something that sounded good to me and found a few alcoholic jalapeno lemonade recipes that appear to be more popular down south. They are all made with vodka but I am considering brewing this up and dry hopping with fresh jalapeno for two days. I will scrape the seeds out first. Any thoughts?

Would it be a bad idea to use the safeale-05 slurry from the bottom of my cream ale recipe for this?

I have made 4 batches of beer using lemon and orange peel and have not run into this.

Saw this recipie today and ran out to buy the stuff for it. Fingers crossed and hoping to see the first bubbles in the next few days.

Default yeast and dme additon


For the cranberry-lemonade I used a Wyeast 1056 american ale and it also called for 2lbs dme and 2lbs of corn sugar, since this has so much more lemon/lime mixer is that why there is so much sugar?

could i add 2lbs dme and cut down the sugar a little bit?

That yeast gave me a much better beer feel and taste, any reason not to try it with this? i'm not partial to using champagne yeast as it drys everything out so much.

Just made my batch yesterday:

6 gallons
8 Minute Maid Frozen Limeade
2 Minute Maid Frozen Lemonade
8 lbs. White cane sugar (stupid 4 lb. bags now, not 5 lbs.)
1 lb. Corn sugar (had it kicking around)
2 Tbsp. yeast Nutrient
1 pack Montrachet (no starter, last minute)

1.100 OG

I should have done a starter... Been almost 24 hours and no airlock activity. Just gonna relax and let it do it's thing.

I was a little worried at the delayed start time too. It was a little over two days before it got cruising. It'll go.
