Quick question, but when do you guys add the Limeade.. I see it says in the notes add after vigorous fermentation has subsided so I'm guessing to add the Limeade when the fermentation is still rumbling after 3-5 days? Anyone give me a little more clarity? Thanks guys!
Because yeast all work different, you will have to watch the fermentation to see when it lightens up....that can be done visually if using bottles, by looking to see if the wort is still moving around....if your using a bucket, look at your air lock and if there is a 2 second delay in bubbles it's started to slow done. In general this happens between 3 to 5 days, but if your not sure then just add on day 5.
After you brew this once, and have gone through the process.....you will see why you need to wait, if you don't then expect a mess!
