I'm looking to brew up a lime Brew, with a brewers best kit. Isaw a post from revvy that he did a cream ale with Roses marmalade, assuming all grain though. If not a cream ale, how about the American light kit? Any thoughts? my wife loves BLL. SO I'm trying to get close to that for her.

American light? Lager?

I would just go a simple ale recipe

8 lbs 2 row
12 oz crystal 10

1 oz hallertaur 60 min

yeast

serve with a lime

No kit needed.

Thanks for your response. I was looking more though for something that already had the lime in it. I went to my LHBS and the guy there threw some stuff together for me, so we'll see how it turns out. If anyones interested here's what he gave me

4 lbs of Extra Light DME-Muntons

1 lb of Rice Syrup Solid

1oz Cascade

1oz saaz

Safale US-05

1lb Pils grain

1lb Crystal-10L

1lb Cara-Pils

1oz of Brewers Best Lime Peel
Using the first 3/4 during the boil and the last 1/4 in the secondary.

Here's to hoping she likes it!

you might want to mix in some lime juice when bottling also

Would need to account for the sugars in the juice vs the carbing sugar

I highly recommend against pre-limed beer.

Plus fresh lime actually imparts vitamins and such.

Cheezydemon3 I appreciate your input, I really do, but I'm not looking for a Corona. I know it can be done pre limed. Making this work for my wife the way she wants it is what I'm after. it may not be conventional, but after all isn't this what its all about. Finding new ways to do things? Thanks though I really do appreciate your input.

Still up in the air about this one. Really need the more candy lime taste than just pure lime. Anymore input would be great with the ingredients I have so far. A little worried if I used a sweetened lime juice or marmalade (which I think would bring about the flavor im looking for) in the latter end of the boil that when it comes time to bottle my sugars would be off, and I have no idea how to account for such a thing.

I brewed this Lemon-lime Hefe from over in the recipe section. It's lime-tastic! There is also an extract version on there (Post #18). It's very lime-y and the general consensus is that it disappears quickly...
