Default Drop top Cranberry HARD lemonade

warm 1 gallon of bottled spring water on stove to about 120 deg add 2# of light DME and 2# corn sugar with 3 camdon tabs. disolve totally. It may take some more heat to do that and a little time.
I used
3 cans of minute made lemonade
1 can minute made PINK lemonade
3 cans of LANGERS cranberry juice
all frozen without any presertives
in fermenting bucket I added all the juice the 1 gal of warm H2O with sugars and 2 more gallons of spring water then added my yeast starter this was almost 4.5 gal total. cover and top with an airlock and give a small shake everyday for the first 5 days fermentation started after 24 hours

I transfered to secondary and added 3 tsp of sorbate-K to kill the yeast @ 1.014
I will add some more DME and corn sugar and maybe some more cranberry and lemonade consentrate to taste. I am not sure how much as this is in secondary as I type this.

Sounds tasty, have you done this or a similar recipe before? I am thinking of something like this, maybe with peach for the SWMBO and friends.

How long do you plan on having this in secondary and do you plan on carb'ing this?

thanks for the info, and good luck

no.. this is the first try on this type of thing. its in secondary now and I am going to keg and carb tonight. It is very tasty thus far and I only forsee it getting better. it does need to be sweetend I will probably add a little more DME and the rest corn sugar. not sure how much yet I will let you know how much I use and you can use that as a guide. I will be carbonating this.
cheers
JJ

Thanks for the info, I may try to brew something like this soon, one last question as i am a complete noob, where do you get the pot. sorbate? I hear it talked about but have no clue.

Also, did you use any nutrient? I noticed in the other thread it was mentioned to help with the acidity

LHBS for the sorbate or on of the online dealers like B3. I only heated 1 gallon of H2o so no need for a big boil kettle, just add the H2o to the bucket with the starter and all the goodies and youll be well on your way

very drinkable! when I do this again I will use a beer yeast. not really sure what one yet but the yeast I used takes to long to drop out and lose the yeast taste.

I made a keg of this and the SWMBO loves it. It's only been carbing for 3 days and Even I have to admit it's pretty awesome.
Here are some notes I took on it.
I made it on 2-2-08 and forgot to take the OG, I also used Welch's cranberry concentrate instead of Langers (I couldn't find any)
Started fermenting on 2-3-08 and and finished with an f.g. of 1.010 7 days later fermented at about 68 degrees
Racked to the secondary and added 1/2 lb of corn sugar and dme heated up in some water 1 can cranberry and 1 can lemonade concentrate. Along with some pre sorbate k to stop the fermentation.
On 4-13-08 I racked to the keg and added (due to the wifes request) 1 can lemonade and 1/2 gallon ocean spray cranberry juice.
She already wants me to make this again. JJ did you make this a second time? and did you use another kind of yeast? I'm thinking maybe a weizen yeast? Something to keep the frutiness.
Thanks for this recipe, its a keeper!

just got you PM but to share no I didn't make it again yet.. just finished the keg out a couple of months ago. Weizen yeast may be good but I want something that will flock out like WLP001 or maybe even an english ale yeast. I ma glad you like it I know everyone around here enjoyed it
Enjoy the brew
Cheers
JJ
