Default GQ Summer Brew with lemon...too much lemon

Have had this in bottles for about a month now, and when I tried it last week, it tasted like Windex. Basically there was way too much lemon extract added. I added only half of the lemon extract that was given to me, but it's still way too much.

When I added it when I bottled it, it was not that strong...is there anyway that I can fix it? I don't want another lost batch

Take another mediocre brew and mix it.

I don't have any failures left.......just this

it's fine, just WAY too much lemon taste

Could I do another batch without lemon, and mix the two.....even though they are way different in age?

Of course.

Or just do a cheap session brew with a lowish ABV so it will not take any ageing then blend that.

ok, so that could be a plan.....figures I don't have a 10 gallon container to mix this all in.

How would I go about priming it? Use the same amount as I normally would since half of it already has been primed, or what?

Do you keg or bottle?

If you bottle I think I'd just blend when serving.

Way too much of a novice to help with your problem but I noticed on your sig that you are drinking mad Bee Blonde Ale. Is that the recipe in Lutzen and Stevens book? Is it a Honey Wheat Ale? How'd it turn out. Just curious as thats up next on my to brew list.

Regards,
Alan W
