Well, I do have an update. The yeast sure have been busy the last 4 days. It is already down to 1.038 (5.5% ABV). It has a distinct brown sugar and lime flavor and I can't even taste a hint of alcohol. It smells like a good, homemade margarita mix.

This is after adding the nutrient, energizer, remaining lime juice, and pectic enzyme. As soon as the nutrient hit the surface, it foamed up pretty good, like a root beer, but with almost a 2 inch tall head.

Here's how it looked when the foam settled out.

I added a few ice cubes as it was warm and tart at first sip. It tastes like a non-alcoholic margarita. I have a feeling this one is going to be as popular as the skeeter pee I made

Finally did a taste test and racking. It tastes delicious! For some reason, fermentation has stopped at 1.012 (9% ABV) and has been there for almost 3 weeks now. Right now it is exactly the flavor I was looking for: like a margarita bit with no tequila flavor.

Good morning Apple Jack. I pulled the pee out of the primary. It looks nothing like yours though. I didn't add anything to it once I put it in the secondary because skeeter pees website confused me a bit. Not sure if to add campden and such now or later when I rack again? Anyhoodle, how does it look at this stage? Is this normal? It smells like banana and lime.
