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."

Leineys Spot On Clone

I purchased 3 kits of 5 gallons each. This recipe is so close to Leineys Summer Shandy. OMG. I added a bit more lemon extract to my mix because I like it a bit more lemony. Anyway, the balance is great. So happy with this brew. Give it a try.

Brew this Beer!

I recently moved to all grain brewing and this was my second ever batch. I wanted something light that could be enjoyed by the pool in the sun for summer. Well, this recipe was exactly what I was hoping for. My friends love it. Even those who say "shandy's aren't my thing" all loved it. My wife loved it too and I think she's had more than I have! Nice foamy head and the lemon crystals added just the right amount of flavoring. I kegged this batch and it's almost gone. There's plenty of summer left so I suggest you make this beer. I will definitely brew this one again.

Great beer.

Great beer. Neighbors loved it too.


Great beer. Very refreshing during the hot summers, especially after mowing the lawn.
