Bump.

Just wondering if using Brown sugar would be beneficial in keeping the yeasties working in the high acidity?

I only have a few brews under my belt, but I plan to try this next. Do you think if I used Brown sugar, I would get some off flavors?

I tried this one today. I followed the recipe exactly as listed, using great value concentrate from wally world. 7 lemon, 3 lime. I added water to 6 gallons. My question is. What is your OG when you make this? Mine was 1.130, does that seem high to you?

48 hours later.....No action.

I popped the top on the bucket, and I looked like the yeast was floating on top. So, I gave it a good stir and put the top back on.

Any idea's?

Got the stuff for this today. Following the OP recipe exactly. Don't have any yeast nutrient, just energizer, so I'll have to pick some up. I'm putting this into two 3 gal containers (they are actually 4 gal, but 3 gaal in each). Can I put 1/2 yeast pkt in each or should I use a pkt. each, and put the full nutrient and energizer in each just to be safe or 1/2 those too?

From experience I tried a full pack of yeast and it wouldn't take off. I'd make a starter with sugar (I also threw in apple juice) and after that gets going add about 100ml of the recipe ingredients at a time every couple hours. After you get a litre or so and it's going good, then add it to your primary. Just pitching the yeast seems to be a hard if not impossible go for them lil buggers.
