I'm glad you're enjoying it Rusty. I need to get a batch going, the weather is starting to warm up here in SoCal and I'll need something light and refreshing.

I am going to brew a big ole batch. I am going to tinker with you recipe slightly. I find my kegs aren't lasting even a week. They are too good and my friends and I are cashing them out in like 4 days. (and no we don't have an alcohol problem we are still in college. I've got a keggle that i plan to use for this huge batch. I am still doing extracts and all my brews have been awesome. I am going to use two different yeast just to experiment with them. One in each better bottle carboy of course.

Question:
When did you add the peel? Would you add more?
Did you add the last Cascade to the primary or just at flame off?

Remember, it's zest, not peel. Just the outer yellow layer, no white pith! I normally add it to the boil with 5 minutes to go. With my last batch, I steeped it in everclear for a few weeks, and poured it into the keg...way too lemony! I quite liked the flavor I got this way, but I'd cut the amount way down if I tried it again...a little goes a long way, and the beer should just have a slight hint of lemon.

The final Cascade addition goes in at flame out. I leave my hop bag in the kettle while chilling.

Yes, whirfloc. With 10 or so minutes to go.

I always got a lot of cold break, but since I switched to a plate chiller, it's absolutely amazing how much precipitates. My freshly filled fermenter looks like a giant bottle of miso soup, but within a few hours it settles down to an inch layer at the bottom. By the time fermentation is over, it's down to 1/4" or so.

I'm not sure why you are thinking about putting two different packs of dry yeast in there... but it couldn't hurt!

Mmm...I've had this recipe in my bookmarks for a while...now that it's getting to be summer (well, summer-esque) I think this might be my next batch.

Brewed this yesterday! The wort tasted awesome.

It's been about 20 hours and bubbling away nicely in its carboy.

Just as a note; zested about 15 small lemons and ended up with about 5 ounces of zest-- far too much! I would guess that the zest from about 6 small lemons would be enough. Going to make a small amount of lemoncello with the remaining zest.

Thanks for the recipe! I'll let you know how it turns out.

Do yourself a favor...get some more lemons, and make a LARGE amount of limoncello! I've been making it for many years, nothing perks up a party better than a big bottle. The ladies love it because it's delicious and sweet, and the guys love it because it's rocket fuel!

Everclear works the best and extracts more flavor, but I've also made it with vodka and it comes out fine.
