Brewmaster Brad's Thoughts:

"Not much is more refreshing than an ice-cold glass of fresh lemonade, or for that matter, a cold, lower ABV American Wheat Beer. Brewers have known this to be a great combination for a long time, and it is high time for a recipe kit featuring this classic combination. The base beer is a simple American Wheat with moderately low bitterness and then it is dosed with real, all-natural, preservative-free crystallized lemon. Not to be confused with lemonade mixes or soft drink mixes, the crystallized lemon in this recipe is just that – lemon. Since the crystallized lemon contains no sugar, the beer gets a delicious dose of lemonade flavor without adding additional fermentables that could lead to a renewed fermentation or possible over-carbonation in the bottle. Give this one a whirl, it is truly a refreshing treat even for the biggest of hop heads."

Lemon goodness

Very nice lemon flavor. Brewed on a Sunday and kegged it in 6 days. Recipe said it would make 4.6% abv but I got 5.6. I guess my efficiency was way higher than normal. I usually get around 82% using the northern brewer cooler system. It’s good beer though. I did up the crystallized lemon from 12 grams to 16. It gave a nice lemon bite without being sour.

Refreshing & Drinkable

I followed the recipe to the letter but this is still my 4th brew in total so I'm open to the possibility that I did something wrong somewhere. The end result was still a very delicious, refreshing beer, but the "beer" taste was very light. It was more of a crisp watery lemonade with some beer taste which wasn't what I was expecting. Still happy with the results, though, and it's great to have a glass on a hot day!

Everyone loved it! I’ll probably do this again.

Crowd Pleaser

I had this kegged and ready for an outdoor (social distancing) Father's Day party with family. It turned out very well. The perfect amount of lemon flavor. I would brew this again in a heartbeat.
