Fesh lemon peel/zest in bottled beer
« on: January 12, 2016, 09:48:08 AM »

i have a beer in secondary in which I want to incorporate the actualy flavour and aroma of fresh lemon peel.
You know, what you get when you add the proverbial "twist" to a beverage.

The easiest (and probably most satisfying) option is to simply serve the beer with a fresh twist of lemon. Duh.
But I was wondering if anyone knows of other ways to have that fresh, sunny lemon zest aroma end up in a bottle of beer?

Thanks in advance!

1. Add lemon zest to secondary a day or two before bottling; or

2. Sanitize your bottles with lemon scented Lysol.
