Any updates on your hard-lemonade batches?
Brazed I followed your directions with a few minor variables:
1. I used 5lbs of sugar instead of 10lbs.
2. Fermentation was actually around 55F-70F
3. Fermentation took 24 days (single fermenter)
4. I didn't dissolve the sugar over heat before adding it.
I tried a pint of it today. The leftover pulp sediment from the lemonade/limeade concentrate doesn't look too appealing in the carboy. It also seems like most of my sugar is sitting at the bottom of the carboy =(.
However, it TASTES GREAT. The only real problem I have the weird smell, that usually doesn't accompany the taste of a mike's hard or a Smirnoff ice, but seems to accompany home brews.
Smell has a lot to do with taste, and I was wondering if you had this problems as well?
