Would it be OK to use fresh lime juice, or would this be too sour? Great recipe btw!
Lime juice would distort the flavor....its actual a lime version of lemonade, earlier in this string I have included a recipe for making your own limeade...but i caution you, make sure that you soak you limes in cold bleach water (1 tablespoon bleach for 1 gallon of cold water), let it soak for at least 10 minutes...then make your limeade!

Thanks for the recipe, can't wait to try it!!
Well short answer...I have been brewing with my equipment for a long time, so I know what it can or cannot do....however this doesnt mean to deviate from the recipe, if you are doing all grain...make sure you can hold temps...if you are doing extract and/or after you reach boil, just make sure you can keep a rolling boil (with lid off) for the duration of the brew.
As for the recipe and the time...you are working with a good amount of grain, you could use less and force more extract at a higher temp but then the flavor profile changes...so by using more grain at a lesser temp, results in a very smooth drinkable beer....However you are the brewer, I can only tell you what has worked but at the end of the day its your beer...so pour your heart in to it and brew it the way you think is best...and should your recipe be amazing, share pictures and the recipe with all of us!
Happy Brewing!

Thanks! What does the bleach do, sanitize the limes? Would it be OK to use PBW and Starsan instead?

I'm thinking of boiling the limeade in any case.

Yes the bleach works as a sanitizer of the outer skin, which can come in contact with pesticides, dirt and foreign yeast/bacteria...star San would work as well!

Yeah that's the worst part....I try and brew once a week, so that I always have something getting kegged or bottled and that helps!

Ditto here, everyone loved it. Said it was the perfect summer beer. It was very hot watching fireworks last night, but this made it much more tolerable.
