I’m looking at an experiment… 3 gallon batch…
It’s not finalized, but I’m thinking of working with the box of Lemon Zinger tea bags, has anyone used them before? Here’s the thought process…
5-6 lbs Pilsner malt
0.5 oz Citra hops 60 min (maybe less)
0.5 oz Citra hops 5 min (maybe less)
Bunch o’ Lemon Zinger not sure how much…
?? Maybe some flame-out sugar for drying and gravity?
Maybe more tea as a ‘dry hop’
I got T-58 to ferment with.
If you don’t know the tea, it’s herbal, it’s got a nice lemon flavor, but also enough hibiscus to be shockingly red in the cup. So the beer would be expected to turn out kinda pink.
I’m looking for lemon, but also maybe some of that Belgian character; sort of a patersbier meets a shandy, (acolytesbier? )
What do you think? Does it have potential? Or am I literally going crazy from the COVID lock-down?
