Default Hard Strawberry Lemonade finally took off...

After a few tense days of 'did I make and condition the starter right for high acid content?', here was my answer....

Honestly, I didn't really have one in mind... Just kinda took the idea from this thread...
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthread.php?t=12104

Here was the recipe I used...

9 cans lemonade concentrate
4.5 gallons water
.5 gallons organic strawberry lemonade
1.5 pounds dextrose
1 pound light DME

Made a starter of Munton's Gold dry yeast w/ 2 cups light DME... Let that settle out (24 hours), added 1/4 cup of the mixed lemonade, let that stand 24 hours and pitched to the pail....

OG was somewhere around 1.060... Currently sitting in the 'brew closet' @ around 70*

Fo sho....

SMWBO is all excited about it... I have to admit, I kinda am too...

Between that and the new batch of Apfelwein I started yesterday during my brew day of disaster, I am a little excited about having three primaries gurgling away at the moment... Now if my darned vanilla porter kit goes well this time...

Default Recipe ???

Was the rest of DME used in the primary or just the starter?
Any boil involved?
Any other yeast recommended?
What is the length of aging for a hard lemonade?
Any enzmyes, energizers or starters?

Again, I have no idea... Just kinda pilfered the recipe here and said 'What the hell?"...

Did use half of a yeast nutrient capsule I got with a previous kit... Like I said, I was just worried about the acidity shocking the yeast like I had read up on...

.5 gallons of strawberry lemonade or concentrate? if it is .5 gallons of strawberry lemonade then I woudn't think it would have much strawberry flavor but I'm not sure.

It was two 32oz bottles of Organic Strawberry Lemonade... Not from concentrate... Since SWMBO doesn't drink beer but doesn't mind those fruit flavored malt beverages, I figured this can't hurt... And I will add more of the juice or maybe a pound or two of strawberries...
