This batch had a very aggressive fermentation, and I blew 2 air-locks before it slowed down. All was okay though and this beer turned out wonderfully. It it great after a week or two in the bottle. I used 1 oz. of lemon extract but I have used as much as two in a previous batch. This is a great beer for spring, I hope I still have some left by the time the weather warms up. If not I guess I'll make another. Happy brewing, I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!!!!!
