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."

Good tasting, could use more lemon

I liked the Shandy but wished it came with a bit more lemon crystal.

Summer shandy

Very good flavor! Confused because it was a lower ABV then I wanted. Not sure how to make it higher. Definitely would recommend as it was an easy process and turned out nicely.
