Currently fermenting so cant comment on the taste, but I would definitely recommend getting some rice hulls if doing all grain. I started with 5% of the grain bill since I was worried about the sparge sticking, but found it stuck anyway. Bumped up to 10% and was good to go. I will admit I usually dont brew wheat based beers so this may be obvious to some, but for those its not hope this helps.
We brewed this with the intention of having a crisp wheat to drink as the temperature came up. Followed the directions exactly, but added 4 oz of orange peel when we added the lemongrass, just for the cool-down. We tried it after three weeks in the keg and I've just pulled the last growler off four weeks later. Delicious, and it's getting better week by week - first crisp and refreshing, now with noticable smooth citrus noters on the backend - I only wish I'd let it wait longer. Oh well, I'll order it again and give it more time. Recommend.
just kegged last week. preliminary reports from the neighbors are overwhelmingly good. one even requested a garage door code (kegerator in the garage) so he can come and go as he pleases.
Great beer, just brew my second kit (all grain) in a year. Slightly malty, lemony and zesty, a great wheat beer. I brewed this kit cooler (61F ambient), I would recommend it, you get a cleaner flavor. This beer is best young, drink as soon as carbonated! Also, +1 on the hop bag/ball, it is very difficult to siphon lemongrass :(
Put the lemongrass in a mesh bag! Else siphoning will be a bear. Good solid beer, maybe a bit too much lemon...
