I can do one of those. Still has quite a ways to go, too sweet yet but moving along nicely.

I pitched mine with Nottingham on Friday, since that was all the "spare" yeast I had, and I didnt really feel like driving 20 miles to the LHBS just for a yeast run. So far it has been slow to start. There is definitely some activity, the lid on the bucket kind swells after 2-3 hours, but there has not been any airlock activity. The airlock is floting, so I have a feeling that it is bubbling, just at a significantly slow rate. It hasnt been very long, so I am going to stick it out and see what happens. At what point should I consider repitching, or is there anything I can do to help it along? I am kind of thinking maybe make up a warm sugar/water solution, take a sample from the batch, and create a second "starter" assuming that the sample has enough viable yeast, of course. Good learning experience, I suppose.
I want to update, it did get going. By the 22nd (six days after originally starting) I finally got noticeable bubbling on the airlock (still slow, about once every two minutes at best) and my gravity was lower by 0.002 from start. It is still going super slow, but it is clearly working. In the future I most certainly will use a stronger starter, maybe mixing part of the sugar solution with some energizer and letting that work for a few days before adding the lemonade.

This is WAY slower than beer and cider, almost enough to drive you mad! But, it is crawling along.

Mine is going slow also, but should be finishing up sometime this weekend. All in all I'm very impressed with the yeast, since I simply dumped all this right onto a old apfelwein cake.

My 2nd batches (earlier in this thread) used:

10 cans concentrate, 10lbs sugar, US-05 *started* + EC-1118 *finished*, 90 day ferment. The result was a sweeter, highly alcoholic. I think my yeast morphed and couldn't finish.

My 3rd batch (started yesterday) will use 8 cans limeade, 6lbs sugar, and nottingham. I wonder if notty will kick through the entire batch.

If it doesn't, do you think a wine yeast like Cuvee or Cote de Blanc could finish it the way EC-1118 does? I want to avoid EC-1118 if I can.
