I really recommend this to anyone interested in a great summer session brew!

More updates to come when she's all bottled and ready.
I'll be over in a minute... don't put away the thief...

Did you use the Campden Tab for the Cucumber?
How did you deal with the possibility of infection from the cucumber. And I noticed that they were peeled...I think that is probably a good idea but what was your reasoning for this? I think the skins would give more aroma. Not sure just asking...

It has been brought to my attention multiple times that the skins can add bitterness. I wanted no real perceived bitterness in the brew, just enough to bring balance. So, I peeled. Also, there's a HUGE cucumber aroma without the skins. So, I would skip worrying about the bitterness of the skins and just peel.

I decided to not deal with infection in the least. I literally sanitized my cutting board and knife, and went to town. Then just dumped the cukes in (sanitized hands). Risky? Maybe, but no infection currently.

Well, the 'final' product isn't out yet. I haven't had time to run to the LHBS to pick up bottles and I don't have nearly enough laying around. So, for now, she's still sitting pretty on the cucumbers in the secondary.

I will let everyone know though!
