I dunno anymore. Added my starter and she's been bubbling up just fine. But after a handful of days the gravity hasn't changed 1 point. Hmmmmm. Lots of bubble on top and airlock bubbles every 10 secs. I'm lost

What would the recipe be like for a 1 gallon? Hmmm, I wonder if I can make something similar to Smirnoff ice? Any ideas? Thanks

Allanyork If you want exactly what we are doing for a 1 gallons scale here is the recipe.

1.5 cans of lemonade concentrate
.5 can of limeade
2 pounds of sugar
.5tsp of yeast energizer
.5tsp of yeast nutrient
one gallon water

IF you wanted to do what I would, which would give you a drink very similar to Smirnoff Ice, but a bit more flavorful do this.
2 cans of lemonade
1 can of limeade
2 pounds sugar
.5tsp yeast energizer
.5tsp yeast nutrient
one gallon water

This stuff is so cheap to do, pick one of these and go for it, it's AWESOME stuff!

Good luck!

On a different note, when I was buying my lemon/lime juice I though, oh what the hell, ill get some of these fruit punch's as well.

I poured 3 cans of the HyVee fruit punch concentrate into my 3 gallon car boy. I dissolved 5 pounds of sugar into some water and poured it in as well. Than after adding 1 tsp of energizer and 1 tsp of nutrient I topped off to the top. Pitched one pack of champange yeast and let er go. I tasted it today and HOLY CRAP this stuff is GOOOOOOOOOOOD! Try it out!

Well, I'm not sure, by this time of night I had been brewing all day and didn't give a damn. The thing is the reading I have on the one I did take is off for some reason. But here's my guess, the one I did measure was 6 gallons and water juice mix and 10 pounds of sugar it's og was somewhere in the 1.125 - 1.130 range. The Fruit punch was technically 12oz more water then exactly half of the first batch. So my GUESS is it's somewhere in the 1.110 - 1.120 range. Let me tell you what, this stuff is SO GOOD.

My advice? do as I did, leave the hydrometer in the drawer. Get a pot, put in a gallon of water, 5 pounds of sugar heat and stir until dissolved. Cover pot, remove from heat dump in your three melted fruit juice concentrates into your carboy. Grab funnel, stick it into carboy dump in your water sugar mix. Add your yeast energizer and nutrient. Add the rest of your water to top off, then pitch your yeast. Plug it with a airlock cover and walk away.

That's it, not fussing no tools, just make it! You will love it promise!

#12 open beer, drink beer.
#34 Name it after me
#51 open beer, drink beer.
