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.
One of my best yet. Good summertime brew. Nice lemon aroma without being overpoweringly fruity.
I put in 3/4 of the lemon grass, as well as a zested orange @ 60m, removed them, and put in the remaining 1/4 of lemongrass for the last 15m. i just racked to the secondary, and took a taste from the gravity test tube, and it was incredible. tart, almost like a lambic, but with that pleasant velvety wheat mouthfeel. i can\'t wait for this to bottle condition...i almost just want to take a straw and suck it right out of the secondary. As stated, use hop balls, or a grain bag. that\'s a lot of grass in yer beer.
Absolutely delicious but truely terrifying to brew! Adding the pack of dried lemongrass at the same time as the yeast takes a leap of faith - it is like adding two handfuls of dried lawn clippings....But it did settle through the primary. It then made siphioning interesting. Fantastic aroma and tart taste from the lemongrass makes this a crowd pleaser though.
