Yeah just wait for it to calm down a little and then add the limeade, leave in the primary of 3 weeks (from start to finish) and you will have a great beer!

What what would be a good sub for mutueka and sorachi? They don't have them on Midwest or Austin home brew

I really don't think there are many substitutes for these if you really want to get the lemonny flavor. I bought mine from brewmasterswarehouse (I even bought the hefe yeast there and had it shipped from ATL to Philly in the middle of the summer!) and everything has worked out fine for me so far. My local homebrew supply had the other hop that BMW didn't.... just keep looking around you will find them. I think there were links posted earlier on in this thread as well...

I agree...these hops are very unique and act as lemon explosions in beer and would be impossible to sub... www.rebelbrewer.com has both types in stock now, and after trying them in your beer you will understand why they are so important!

Can't wait to brew this. No secondary at all right?

I wouldn't...the conditioning phase won't clear this beer up, but it will clean up byproducts and heavy sugars...so I rarely use a secondary.

A new twist to this beer for everybody who brewed it...pour it on ice, add a shot of Patron Silver and it makes one he'll of a margarita!

I racked it into a keg, and force carbed it over night last night. I just took a quick sample a few minutes ago.... and, WOW! Amazing flavor! Very nice beer!

A few weeks ago I told someone that I had made this beer, and they were like, "Oh, like a Bud Light Lime?" I hadn't even thought about that beer, so I immediately got scared about what this beer would turn out to be like.... THANK GOD it was nothing like that crapola!

Beautiful beer, with a nice lemon-lime bite to it at the back end. Nice lemon lime aroma, lacing all down the glass (and it's not even all the way carbed up yet!), nice solid mouthfeel, just an all around good beer. VERY drinkable!

I will definitely do this one again! Thanks for the recipe!

We are having a few people over on Monday, so I'll let you know what they think of it too!

Anyone have any links to where to buy these hops? I can't seem to find them anywhere?
