Sorry for the slllooowwww response! Got no sulfur taste at all. Make sure to crush the campden into powder otherwise they take forever to dissolve. Good luck!

Got this on the gas today. First pic it before the lemonade was added, second is after.

Very sweet brew. Finished a bit high. 1.015 or so.

Lemonade counters it with tartness. We will see the final results soon.

Could you use lemon peel during the mash, instead of Simply Lemonade, and theoretically gain the same results?

Unlikely. The lemon juice adds to the beer texture and mouth feel.

Not that lemon peel would be abad choice, just not the same brew.
