i serve mine at my usual beer pressure of 10 -12.
most times i bottle from the keg as this is a drink i share a lot of.
last few batches i have left out the DME and just use sugar and lemonade conscentrate.
let it ferment out, stabalize with sorbate and campden back sweeten with a can of concentrate an force carb.

I'm trying this again after trying this last year and having a catasrophic failure with my bucket lid developing a crack and letting in the gnats and who knows what else. This round I'm using a 1 gallon carboy with drilled stopper and airlock which should keep the nasties out. I prepared this last afternoon and had activity in the airlock by evening. Today, the airlock is bubbling happily at a rate of about 4/min. The starting gravity I had should let this finish at about 9%. That is probably a good round number I hope.
