I just finished up brewing this, but I got greedy, sparged with too much water and didn't adjust the grain bill. So, I ended up with an OG of 1.042 instead of 1.051. It should still be good, hopefully it will be even more of a session beer.

How many limes did you end up using to get the right amount of zest?

I bought 4, and that gave me enough!


I have my own question about when you add the Limeade though... did you rack the wort to secondary on top of the limeade, or did you rack/pour the limeade through a funnel directly into the primary?

Thanks!

Sorry everyone...I was in Sturgis for the Bike Ralley and was too busy watching all the naked Women, that I didnt check my e-mails.

-Stblindtiger...you should be o.k., and you might consider adding more limeade to increase the amount of fermentable sugars
- In regards to the limes, 2 large 4 small should do the trick
-As for a extract recipe....7lbs 12.6 ounces of Wheat Liquid Extract and 10.7 ounces of Pale Liquid Extract.

Hope this helps, I hope you enjoy and Happy Brewing!

Almost forgot....for the racking, wait 24 hours after initial fermentation and then add the limeade to the primary fermenter...if you added it all on the first day, you would have lime wort all over your house (it's that explosive)!

Thanks for the info on the Limeade addition! I wasn't sure if you racked it to secondary or not...

Can't wait to try this one!
