Can you guys detail what a "can of lemonade" is? We have nothing equivalent in Australian that I know of?

Same we don't have cans of apple concentrate

It is frozen concentrate. You mix it with water to a certain amount and you have juice. What kind of juice mix do you have. hose

We generally have cordial, you can get some cold fruit drink concentrates that are designed to be mixed. But they generally don't taste great. Usually they are only orange or orange & mango. Might have to have a better look round the supermarket next time I'm there.

Otherwise all our juice comes ready to drink. Most of it is reconstituted though Cheapest freshly processed apple juice I have come across so far is $5/L

made this exactly, and added 6# of strawberry puree when Ralphs had strawberries for $1/#. honestly drank a third of it straight from the carboy. well, SWMBO did...

Making my second one of this tonight, same recipe, but this week Ralphs had raspberry pints for $1. adding 5# of raspberry puree into it. just hope it lasts long enough to go into bottles so i can make some sparkling.

great recipe!

Mine has been going for about 5 weeks. It's starting to clear. Just tasted it before racking to secondary. Wow! This is going to be good. My only question is whether to start one more gallon or five more gallons today.

Wow, I'm confused. I just read a BUNCH of posts that talk about D47 producing a ton of fusels if it gets above 68 degrees but no one here seems to be having that trouble...I wonder why? The hell with it, I'm trying this. I am so TIRED of people whining that they can't drink my meads right away...so this should put a stop to that quicklike

Let's just say that hypothetically I made a 5 gallon batch but wasn't thinking straight and put twice as much sugar in as I should have. Tying to figure out what will happen. Yeast chokes out before it gets to the honey maybe? Or will it ferment ok and just end up really strong? Hypothetically I used 5 cans lemonade, 5.5 lbs honey, and 5 lb sugar (which should have been 5 cups). It's bubbling and making some noise 24 hours later.

It will be higher alcohol content and will need more to mellow out for better taste.
