Default Experimental Iced Tea!!

So I had made a batch of cider about a month ago and decided to try and do the same recipe, only swap the apple juice with iced tea. gallons arizona iced tea, 3 cans of minute maid lemonade concentrate and about 3/4 gallon water and 2 lbs. sugar. It tasted outstanding all mixed up but I know the fermentation will take alot of the sweetness out and Ill have to backsweeten. Anyways, fermentation has taken off and seems to be doing well. If it comes out tasting anything like the unfermented product it should be outstanding. Very excited bout this one, as it would be a great summer treat.

Please update this post when it's drinkable. I'm very curious about how it turns out.

I've thought of doing that everytime I make some homemade ice tea.

Keep us informed how it turns out!

I have a mixed drink that is very similar to that. I call it a John Daly. I'll be waiting to hear how the fermented version turns out, it sounds very interesting.

Will definitely let everyone know how it turns out. I plan on backsweetening with splenda and maybe another gallon of iced tea, just to get some of the tea kick back in it. Oh and it had an OG of 1.062 so Im assuming it will have a good kick to it.
