Anybody try brewing a Sam Summer clone with a grains of paradise substitute?
What's a suitable substitute, or is there one?

Or even, where can I get this stuff if my Local Brew Shop doesn't carry it?

Sam Adams inspired me to create my own summer ale. I used a malt extract from my LHBS and a mild hop - Hallertau? I added an entire lemon zested with a cheese grader. The result is pretty nice. It's got a nice citrus / lemon initial smell / taste and a real mild mouth feel but the finish seems a little dry or soapy. It leaves your mouth dry and kind of chalky. I'm wondering if this is because I have too much lemon zest or perhaps I had another problem. It's been bottled for only a week now so maybe it will change over time. Any thoughts on this?

Thanks -
Paddy

I've made this several times with great results. Its cleaner and tastes better then real Sam's Summer (especially this years horrible recipe!). If you don't have 1272 (or any of the yeast listed) I've used American Wit and 1056 each once, and it still came out great.
