Dull Clear Beer

Classification: clear beer, Zima

Source: Mike Gerard (, HBD Issue #1093, 3/9/93

There is a recipe in Cat's Meow called "Sima" that calls for brown sugar and priming sugar bittered with lemons. It sounds like this new "Zima" is priming sugar with lemons (or something similar).

Result: A clear beer with no body (what a great marketing strategy)!



Boil hops alone for 1 hour (there's nothing to be added to the water/wort). Ferment. Add priming sugar.
