Have you seen this one?

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthread.php?t=27966&highlight=hard+lemonade

Also, Yooper Chick has really good info for hard lemonade.

I would just do the hard lemonade recipe with 4 gals lemonade, 1 gal cranberry juice.

Hard lemonade is easy- but I did have trouble with getting fermentation started. My recipe (along with my notes and other's input) is in this thread: http://homebrewtalk.com/showthread.php?t=12104&highlight=hard+lemonade

Someone else around here (rdwj or Rod?, Pumbaa?) uses DME in it as well, for a real "malt beverage" like Mike's. I think that sounds really, really good!

I like the sounds of the malt. What kind of sugar worked best? As far as malt goes how much was used or was all the sugar replaced with malt?

I think he used 1 pound of DME, maybe in place of some of the sugar. I can't remember, try a search for hard lemonade malt or ask one of them. My memory is failing me in my old age!

I use regular sugar in all of my wine recipes, unless it specifically calls for something different.

Dumb question, JJ, but you are going to use the sorbate after fermentation is over, to stabilize if you're sweetening, right?

(I know you know this, I just want the recipe to be clear for all of us, too)

I kinda need the instructions baby steps....I am not to the point of just being able to wing it.

If any one has a chance to break it down, sure would appreciate it
