    Hum? the idea sounds good, the only thing that came to mind when I read the recipe/method was that it'd likely be better/safer to have "zested" the lime, then squeezed it for the juice. Citrus pith (the white bit of the skin) is famous for adding a bitterness. Most methods that are reported as successful seem to use just the juice and zest. One of the few exceptions is the JAOM method of mead making, but the residual sweetness goes some way in masking the pithy bitterness, and you get a bit of an "orange marmalade" thing going on.

    But it's up to you.......
    Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.
