I bottle mine up in smaller bottles. The Grolsch beer bottles work really well, and they're a good size too.

I found a different recipe at NY Times and it looks more my speed. Basically the lemon is suspended above the alcohol in cheesecloth in an enclosed jar. Very interesting..

Here is the link.
Case Study | Presto Chango, Limoncello! - NYTimes.com

Has anyone tried this method?

Here is my recipe! =)
8 lemons
1 bergamot orange (optional)
1 (750-ml) bottle Stolichnaya 100 proof vodka or other 100 proof grain vodka
4 cups water
2 cups granulated sugar

SPECIAL EQUIPMENT: funnel; 2 empty clean 1-liter bottles with caps

Using a sharp vegetable peeler or paring knife, cut zest from lemons and bergamot orange, avoiding white pith. Cut away any remaining pith from zest with a sharp paring knife. Transfer zest to a 2-quart pitcher. Reserve lemons for another use.
Add vodka and water to pitcher. Cover pitcher with plastic wrap and let zest steep for 5 days at room temperature.
Strain liquid through a fine-mesh sieve into a medium saucepan and add sugar. Heat over medium heat, stirring, just until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool completely. Using a funnel, transfer limoncello to bottles and refrigerate for two weeks before serving. Serve well chilled.
