WARNING: Kettle losses > 2% detected which throw off OG calculation for extract/partial mash recipes in batch target 'fermentor' mode. Solution: Reduce kettle losses, misc losses and hops absorption in equipment profile, OR set batch target to 'kettle' and do a full wort boil. See batch target FAQ.

Notes

This is a lighter Summer beer that pays homage to my favorite baseball team, the Chicago Cubs. The hop schedule spells out the team name: CuBS, and then we finish with a W in the dry hopping stage. I added some lemon peel and lemongrass for flavor as well. And, as the name indicates, these are light enough to have more than one on a Spring day. For the zest/juice, use 3 lemons and 3 limes and add on the following schedule: 1/3 at 5, 1/3 at 2, and 1/3 at flameout. Add 1/2 of the lemongrass at 15 minutes and the other half at 5.
