Look in mt recipes for "sharie's Summer Shandy. Looking back though,I'd add some lemon zest at 10 minutes left in the boil as well. It's improve the flavor a bit I think.

Take a lager you like.
Pour into a glass, filling half way
Take a sparkling lemonade like 7up
Top up the glass
Drink

I've been on the shandy quest for quite some time. So far I think the best is adding 2 oz lemon zest soaked in vodka for a couple days plus two 12 oz cans lemonade concentrate to secondary to a light beer (I've done wheat, blonde, and kolsch) that was mashed high (154-156*). Good luck!

Do you think the lemon concentrate can be used as a sugar replacement before bottling for carbonation

???

It could, but make sure you measure out how much sugar you need based on the nutritional info on the can.

just add lemonade or 7up to your favorite beer and mix it right in the glass.

Look under my avatar where it says "recipes" & click on that. You'll get a drop down window to choose from.
