I am planning on brewing this tomorrow. Does it make a difference in using key limes as opposed to the regular persian limes found in most grocery stores? im having trouble finding fresh key limes. Thanks!

the juice from one regular lime should be fine, around here key limes are cheaper, so that's what I usually have around.

Just whipped up a batch of this. I used lemon juice and tartaric acid instead of the lime but every thing else is the same.

Hope this turns out well. Thanks for the recipe.

It should be dry, but not bone dry, apply, a bit sparkling, and very refreshing, as noted. hope you enjoy it.

I've got a gallon experimental batch going with juice and a can of concentrate, starting gravity 1.062. It's been fermenting about three weeks. I've got tea bags and an acid blend sitting around and I'm interested in trying this out. Is there any reason I shouldn't add in some tannins or acids when I rack it to secondary? I'd probably create the mixture and then put it in the oven at 175 or 200*F to pasteurize it without boiling, then cool it to temperature and toss it in...

Sounds good, as long as you are sure that you pasteurized the acid and tea mixture, I wouldn't know how much acid blend though, I've never used it myself.
