Went to a pub the other day, 100 beers on tap... needless to say I didn't want to leave. Best part was you could by 6 x 5oz. tasters.

In any case, one was the Grapefruit Stiegl Radler, which was amazingly good. Hoped AHS had a kit but not that I could see.

Anyone have a recipe for a clone?

Thanks

I've got 10 gallons of pils fermenting right now. I'm planning on just fermenting and carbing some grapefruit juice, and just mixing them when serving.

How'd this turn out?

Well, I don't recommend fermenting 100% grapefruit juice. I think it's too acidic for the yeast to work happily. With staggered nutrient additions, it still threw a lot of sulfur. It's dissipated a bit with age, but it's still pretty undrinkable by itself. Imagine extra-bitter campari, but with a bit of sulfury funk on top.

If I try this again, I'll probably mix the grapefruit juice 50/50 with some grape or apple juice, or mix with low gravity wort.
