In my experience it is fare easier to put this on top of the lees/yeast cake after making cider. The yeast is already well established and handles the high acid level of the lemon juice much easier.

It's tastes great, the ladies in my neighborhood really enjoy it back sweetened, carbonated and over ice on a hot summer day.

Should be a winner then I might just make a gallon first make sure I like it lol how strong does it come out ?? And am I right in thinking a yeast cake is just the slurry from the bottom of the barrel after fermenting ??

Yooper has a great explanation of how to do this successfully. So I shall not try to reinvent the wheel.

I have not tried her recipe for hard lemonade but the instructions (I have used) for getting a highly acidic juice fermenting and they are super.

So will this only work with a yeast cake ?? Or can you just pitch fresh yeast ? Don't you get a bit of flavor transfer using pre used yeast ?

i've made this several times by just taking about 1/2 liter out, watering it down and making a starter with that.

i've pitched right into the carboy to but it took a little longer to get going, but it did work. i recommend the watered down starter.
