Sorry to hear that man. It is pretty easy to get too much citrus zest character, especially depending on the size of the citrus used. I probably should have been more cautionary with my directions. It might be a good idea to go with 1/2 the total amount of zest that I originally used and see how it does, what works for me might not work for everyone. Also, adding too much fruit will dry the beer out quite a bit. The key to this beer is balance, you don't want too much of one flavor.

I should brew this up again. It's been a while, though my last batch scored a 38 in a local beer comp, this time under specialty beers. I'm pretty happy with that.

I just racked onto 2 lbs of frozen peaches after a week in primary. i used t58 dry yeast I had on hand. The sample was surprisingly good. Does this really need 3 wks in secondary? I'm hoping to free up the fermentor a bit sooner than that.

One week in the primary is not enough time, usually. I'd really have given it at least two weeks in the primary on the yeast and another week in secondary with the peaches at a minimum. So after fermenting for a week, did you rack the beer off the yeast cake or just added the peaches to the primary?

DOH! just realized I reversed the recipe ferment timeline. Oh well. I racked into a clean secondary buti likely grabbed a bunch of yeast as it was still in suspension. I'm sure it will be drinkable. BTW I used zest of 2 lemons 1 lime and 1 grapefruit and found it perfectly citrusy. I did skip the mace bc I was not sure about what it would do. Thanks for the input!

I am getting ready to make a batch of this. I geared up to just make half of a batch. This beer sounds mighty tasty!

This recipe looked great for some peaches that came from a friend's backyard. Going into the secondary today once the peaches thaw (froze them two months ago while thinking about what to do with them).
