Notes

Only using 1 yeast pack. Its SLIGHTLY underpitching. Probably not enough to boost ester production, but maybe.

Add DME 20 min to FO.

Gelatin, campden tabs, and potassium sorbate only needed if you want to make a shandy out of this.
The amounts for these 3 things are per gallon of beer that will combined with the lemonade.
2 days CC, gelatin to CC vessel, then another 2 days. Then, rack to keg, add lemonade, potassium sorbate, and campden tablets, then carb.
