Default I think I finally made a beer that jumps out on my taste buds!

So today was bottle day and I was all excited of course. I got an auto-siphon today....worked great until it didnt fit all the way into the neck of the carboy, so I took a funnel and filter and ever so lightly poured it into my bottling bucket (yes i know...not the smartest idea but i accidently broke my second racking cane so this was the only choice). Anyway, once the beer was in the bottling bucket I of course took a small sanitized cup and tried some of it. It was well....okay. Not the best...not the worst...just so, so. I added the priming sugar thinkin maybe it will sweeten it up a bit and a that little extra I needed. Nope...that didn't do it. I was a bit disapointed cuz this was a recipe I kinda thought up in my head and just brewed it. So i was sitting there thinking, "Is there anything i can add to this beer to gve it a little extra." I was just about to bottle the boring beer until I remember I had made a bunch of lime extract the month before to make a BL Lime clone. So then I took the lime extract out of the fridge which was sitting in there for a month and added it to a little cup and then added some of the beer to see if they blended. OMG!!!!! It was PERFECT! (maybe not perfect...but it turned this boring, bland beer into a great beer I would drink everyday!) It tasted sooooooo good. So i added the rest of the lime extract then to the bottling bucket and stired it and it tasted AMAZING! I can't wait to see how good it is carbonated. The beer had a citrus type aroma before i added the lime extract...and the citrus aroma and the lime extract mixed perfectly! I can't wait to share this with my friends.

I will post the recipe in the recipe section later and post the link! WOOOOOO

EDIT: Here is the recipe....http://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthre...731#post777731

Ahhh I do know that feeling well, the one of making a boring batch better.

After reading your recipe, I can't decide if it looks like meaningless hooch-ish, or a really easy tasty summer drink to make. Judging by your reaction I think it's the latter.

Hope it turns out great!

Keep in mind that the yeast will eat the priming sugar while the beer carbonates, so you'll lose the sweetness you tasted from its addition.
