hard iced tea
 
i know this might not be the correct place for this but im new here and wasnt sure were to post. Has anyone ever tried brewing a hard iced tea.:off: :

No, but I've heard of it being done. Brew your tea, add corn sugar to the gravity you want (a pound per gallon is a good start), add yeast and ferment.

Add campden tablets to kill the yeast, sweeten to taste.

This will not produce anything like a Long Island Iced Tea, which isn't from Long Island and doesn't contain tea!

I was looking for something more like twisted tea or mikes hard iced tea not a long island. Could regular sugar be used instead of corn

I successfully made an Iced Tea Mead many years ago.

I used the flavored Celestial Seasonings tea bags and sweet mead yeast.

It was very good.

My buddy from Alabama makes what he calls an "Ice Pick:"

8 oz sweet tea
1.5 oz vodka
Serve on the rocks

It's not bad - and you don't have to brew it.

I mention this because I'm not sure that tea would taste very good after it ferments.

Don't know if you know anyone in the San Antonio area but I was in the HBS there Saturday and was looking through a receipe booklet they had put together and there was a tea wine in there. You might be able to experiment a bit to get what you want.
