Beer Style: Fruit Beer
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons
This beer was the creation of making a smooth wiess like beer, but not as sharp, to satisfy my girlfriend's love for lemon flavored beer. It's pretty strong too. Very good lemon aroma and soft sweet aftertaste. I have made three batches and each has been great!
Boil 2 gallons of water, remove from heat and add the malt extracts and honey. Add 1-1/2 ounces of the hops at this time. Return to heat and boil for 50 minutes. After removing from heat, add the remaining 1/2 ounce of hops, the lemon extract, and the juice from the 4 lemons.
Chill wort to 72 degrees, transfer to primary fermenter and pitch yeast. Ferment for 7 days at 72 degrees. Rack to secondary fermenter and let sit another 7 days. Bottle and let sit for 4 weeks.
