I made this beer and it was a hit at my party. it almost had to much of a lime flavor for some people so i would maybe add half the amount of lime-aid.this is defiantly a beer to try.


by ramma

Made this with some lemon lime all juice combo that I found at the store. Turned out to be one of the best things I've brewed. Not too hoppy, not too lemon & limey, and extremely drinkable.

Great "House Beer"

by steveinthepark

Everyone that has tried this has loved it. Being from the UK I substituted the simply limeade for:

juice of 9 limes
200g sugar
top up to 1.75L with boiled water

It is fantastic. Well recommended.

Way to much Lemon-Lime

by mucci2k

I upped the IBU's to 24 and it was still to sweet. If I did it again I will cut the Limeade in half.

I have doubts about the fermentation with lemon

by Liebreferoz

Hello everyone, I have doubts, at what time of the fermentation is the lemon added?
