Two weeks primary fermentation, two weeks secondary fermentation, two weeks of bottle conditioning. Came out pretty well, it's got some wheat flavor but with some citrusy lightness you'd expect from a shady. Will get again.
It’s very simple process and the flavor is incredible.
Great beer, highly drinkable. One of the better recipes I've tried.
Great full flavored beer with a lemon twist ... way better than the washed out stuff you buy at the store....
Just completed and kegged this Beer...Hot summer days and already I need to make more. Easy to make. I, personally, would add a little more "Lemon" to this recipe
