How much headspace does this stuff need? I plan on making it in a 5 gallon bucket with a blow off tube like I do Apfelwein.

Can you use the yeast slurry from a batch of skeeter pee to make another batch of skeeter pee?

I would think you may be able to the main thing I would be concerned with is that the yeast may be strained from the conditions of the first batch and may give some off flavors.

You could make this like apfelwein if you wanted. Just boil the sugar in some water first, use sanitized (boiled and cooled or store bought) water, don't open the bottles until you are ready to go and dump it all in a sanitized carboy. Skip the other additions, that's all fruit wine stuff.

The alcohol mostly comes from the sugar. If you want it to be lower (this stuff is about 10%), all you have to do is reduce the sugar. I'm sure it would still be good, flavor-wise.

This sucks, I really doubt I'm going to be able to find lemon juice here in Aus.. Does anyone have any idea on how many lemons it would take for this?

You know I was thinking that you could probably just ferment out sugar water...stabilize it and add in the lemon juice and back sweeten. Make it a LOT easier to do but would it taste as good? I have my second batch going and third gonna be started tomorrow.

Doubtful, Apfelwein takes apple juice and makes a dry white wine out of it. Skeeter Pee is supposed to be sweet and taste like lemon. I am sure if we did it like Apfelwein it would be more dry white winish. Also I guess citrus is supposed to be notorious for being hard to get fermenting which is why I think some of these other steps are involved.
