    Just wonder what other peoples thoughts are on this. I made a ginger beer kit. Be3 and a kg of dextrose. Not bad but i feel like itd be fun to improve on. Considering adding kaffir lime chillie and fresh ginger to the next one. Just wondering. Do you think ill lose alot of the kaffir lime flavor if added in fermentor.. or should i just add it at the end before bottling thanks. (Boiled as a tea leaves removed)

    Very early in my brewing days i made something and put a kaffir lime leaf or two in each bottle, i suspect it may have been something along the lines of a corona. It didnt turn out as expected at all, smelled and even tasted somewhat like Rose water, not terrible, just not what i was going for.

    I have always used lime juice and the zest when soaking grated ginger in hot water,usually easier as I have a lime tree in the back yard.
