Made this and bottled today...WOW...this stuff is good. Perfect over ice. Used 5 cups of sugar at the end and it's perfect.

In the process of making this now. SWMBO hates everything that tastes of alcohol. Hopefully she will like this.

I just finished a batch of cranberry lemonade. I used cranberry juice instead of water. It was a huge hit.

I'm with you there Bro! Same boat. She never drinks when she needs to calm her nerve. Im hoping that she will like this

I brewed this the correct way on Monday. Its fermenting like CRAZY right now and my room smells so lemony. I want it to hurry up so I can have some. I was just out doing yard work and all I could think is how I want some NOW.

I am planning on kegging this tomorrow. Do I need the sorbate if I keg? My plan is to rack to my bottling bucket to sweeten and then into the keg. I haven't been able to find any sorbate yet and was hoping the fridge temp would stop any fermentation.
I have an APA to bottle as well and if I need to switch the 2 I can but I think I would prefer the lemon on tap (easier for SWMBO to get at if she likes it!!).

Okay, round 2 is in the bottles.

Didn't use sorbate this time, as I'm going to let it get carb'd up. Used 2 cans of lime-ade for fun, and 6 cups of sugar this time. Tasted great going in the bottles.

I filled 4 PET bottles and will use them as a gauge by their squishy-ness to determine what's happening in the glass. I really, really hope things don't explode on me.

Was thinking of just piling everything in the dishwasher and running a high-heat cycle to pasteurize when the time comes - anyone ever do this with success?

Yeah, I'm curious if it's up front (before fermentation) or if it's part of the back sweetening, guessing it's the back sweetening. making this again next week and have been thinking cranberry lemonade

Might be doing it tonight - checked a PET bottle yesterday, and it was just a hint fizzy. Today I grabbed another and it's hard as a rock - got it chilling now to check, and also a glass bottle in the freezer to check as well (might as well have 2 if it's ready!).

After I run the other 2 PET bottles through the dishwasher with the glass ones, I'm going to put them all in the ferm. chamber while I leave the PET ones out for another week. If they gush or expand further then I know the pasteurization didn't work and I'll need to step it up. If it's the same after, then we're good.

I suspect these will all be gone on the 17th anyway, as we're moving and I want to satisfy the help with some refreshing homemade hard lemonade.

This **** really is good - can't believe more people don't make it.
