Brewing this now, been itchin to try. Making a 1 g. Batch with a few variations.
15 tea bags, boiled in 1/2 g water ( the tea was and orange and black el cheapo the wife had.)
2 c of corn sugar
1 lemon and orange

Plan on sweetening to taste after done without carbonation. Has anyone ever bottled and carbonated it?

The lemon juice isn't sufficient to inhibit yeast production.

Regarding the carbonation:

I am guessing its more fizzy right?

I just did a one gallon batch of this basically using the recipe from a few posts previous. i have a question now. It's been in primary for just over a week and is finished fermenting, it's gone from 1.048 down to .992 (measured .992 for 3 straight days). Can I go ahead and stabilize it then backsweeten in a day or two, or do I need to let it sit on the lees longer and then just stabilize in a couple weeks?? Thanks!! very anxious to taste this, its definitely sweet tea weather already!!!
