Awesome line.

Yea it's gas in solution, certainly not fermenting more if your hydrometer is correct.

I just started a 1 gallon batch of Welch's grape juice wine with Red Star Pasteur Red yeast. Any one ever use this yeast cake for Skeeter Pee?

Yes it would work, just make sure to add the yeast nutrient and energizer per the recipe. I used this yeast in a cranberry wine then to start my pee. The color is great! It's getting bottled next week.

Have a good one!

Well I finally succeeded in doing something I tried to do months ago - carbonate my skeeter pee.

I don't remember exact dates, but while it was cold I made a batch of skeeter pee. I let it ferment and sit in secondary for months until it was warm out. I bottled without having ever added sulfites in hopes it would carb. No luck. So I've put my last case under the basement stairs around 58deg, just to get it out of the way. Well the last 3 bottles I've opened are a little carbed. This one I opened tonight was carbed about like a normal beer with maybe 2-2.2 vols.

What's scary is now I have to keep these cold probably 9-10 mo after I pitched the yeast. Pretty unexpected after all this time.

My piss is ready to go sans sweetening and stabilizing, I tasted it a lil' and yes it def needs the sweetening! Also, then lemon flavor just seems a little bland I guess, but may be different with the sweets. I am thinking about leaving it in the carboy till spring and then make sun tea with it, then sweeten and stabilize accordingly. Any thoughts ideas or predictions?
