Congrats man,looks great so far. Def a vigorous ferment you've got going there. It should be clearing nicely in the 4th week or so. Mine always does,or slightly misty. By the time it's in bottles 3-7 days,it should get really clear. Keg should be the same.

What section of the grocery are you finding the True Lemon? I can't find that stuff anywhere.

It's next to the sweetener in the baking isle of my grocery store (Giant Eagle)

Just kegged this last night. OG and FG were pretty spot on as well. I think my FG was 1.012 instead of 1.011. Base beer tasted great even before the lemon was added. Can't wait til this is all carbed up and ready to go. Thanks Uniondr!!

Your welcome. It may turn out orange amber,which is darker than leinenkugel's,but the taste is pretty close. It's great on a warm day. Just put 8 more of V2 in the fridge a couple hours ago myself. Cheers!

Hate to say it but not a lot of lemon flavor...I followed the recipe to the "T" except I used Cluster hops because that is what Leinenkugel's uses. I don't know if by kegging it the lemon drops out of suspension so I lose it after the first few pours or what?? So with bottling you don't lose any lemon flavor I guess?

Had high hopes for this one, not sure what I'm going to do? I bought a 6 pack of Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy to do a taste comparison.....hopefully that will give me the insight on what to do??? I have a party coming up on July 7th so I'll need to "fix" it soon.

Cheers

Maybe a dumb question, but what is "Cooper's OS Lager" - never seen this in the HBS? Im guessing by the instructions its LME. Is it wheat DME? Pils DME? Something else?

Guy at LHBS said its probably a pre hopped LME. I went with a standard wheat LME. Just finished pitching yeast on this batch! Fairly straight forward:

30 minute, 4 gallon boil
1 lb Wheat DME @30
.5 oz East Kent Goldings @ 15
1oz Sweet Orange Peel @ 5
.5 oz Citra @3
6 lbs Wheat LME @ flame out
Chill, top off with 1 gal cold distilled water
Safale US-05
OG: 1.050
Going to wait 4 weeks or so, then mix up the priming sugar and 12 packets of the Tru Lemon, rack to bottling bucket and bottle!
