I guess some of you have tried the beers with lime,Carlton Fusion,Barefoot Raddler etc.
I have been doing my own.
Using Coopers Canadian Blonde and Coopers Mexican Cerveza as the base kits,I have been adding 2x250ml bottles of Lime Juice(Berri or Coles brand,100%).
Great summer drink,doesnt seem to be as good in winter,I stopped using it on my last brew.
I would suggest only using 1x250ml bottle to start with.
The Lemon juice in the same bottles works well too.

You're adding the lime during the fermenting stage? or at the drinking stage?

On the side...bought myself a twin font Kegorater recently with 19L Cornelius kegs.....best thing I ever did. God I hated cleaning and priming bottles.....:) :twobeers:

Cheers,

Hi Kev
I add it at the fermenting stage,when you are adding all the ingredients.
Yes,kegs are the way to go,easier and much better quality brew!!!

Here's a recipe using lemon grass, I'm not a big fan of Corona, but this homebrew recipe is quite good if you keg your beer.

TIJUANA TEASER
*CORONA
1 can Beermaker's or Blackrock Mexican
1 brew booster
1 dry enzymes
2 stems lemon grass (optional)

What about fresh squeezed juice? I want to try something with orange or a hint of mandarin...

My second favorite beer after Bootleg Brewery Settlers Pale Ale.

Little Creatures Pale Ale MkII

Coopers draught lager
Coopers Light Malt wheat/barley mix
300g Dextrose powder
Sachet Safale yeast
15g Cascade hops
15g Williamette hops
21L purified or rainwater
Currently doing another variation on this using dry rather than liquid malt & sugar.
Fermentation bubbled it's head off for the first 2 days at 20C down to 18C!! Think it might be one to savour.
Now if i can get the recipe for Bootleg Breweries seasonal "57" I would be a happy camper!!!

Cheers
