    Making small adjustments to a Clawhammer recipe to give lemondrop a try. Also my first time using brewer's friend for a recipe and will have some new equipment going so looking forward to it. Main changes I've made are bumping up the grain bill for a higher gravity... and simplicity in ordering, adjusting the hop schedule a little, reducing boiling time, and fermentation temp.

    Anything sticking our or suggestions are much appreciated. Really hoping for light color with a smooth mouthfeel and rounded citrus flavor. Thanks!

    That will indeed be citrus.

    Depending on your equipment, you might consider a half pound of rice hulls to counter that wheat and oats. Makes things flow better.

    Personally, that is a complex hops bill, I like things simple, but I do not see anything 'wrong' with it. Just complex.

    I would love to hear how this turns out!

    Those other hops will most likely overpower the lemon drop however it looks like it will be super tasty
