I made a batch of hard lemonade and the flavor just isn't there. It has a light lemon flavor but taste mostly just acidic. Looking for suggestions on adding some more flavor...can I just add more concentrate to it before I bottle?

I had that problem when I made skeeter pee which is why I switched to this... I now use that batch of skeeter pee to add extra abv and acidity to my hard lemonade batches because mine normally finish too sweet if anything.

But the batch I've got going now has bubbled way longer than any previous batch so I don't know.

Started a one gal batch yesterday

1 can lemonade
1 can limeade
1 cup sugar
1 pk.EC-1118
1 pinch baking soda

And it is already fermenting heavily.... I love ridiculously strong yeast

What does the baking soda do?

It neutralizes the acid to help the yeast do their thing

Ok I'll have to check mine again tonight and see where it's at since everyone else seems to be getting rocket fuel.

I just followed this recipe about 3 hours ago.

I used 1tsp per gallon of yeast nutrient mixed with 2 cups of H2O to reconstitute EC-1118yeast and pitched with a vigorous stir to aerate well.

OG was 1.104 and I already have airlock activity. Hopefully this is the sign of success.

Thanks for the recipe.
