Would it be ok to ferment the pee all the way to dry in an open fermenter (bucket covered with tea towel), and not rack it onto carboys until it's time for the sorbate etc?

How has the colour turned out for everyone, my 1 gallon batch tastes good but it's very pale.

I think it's supposed to be really clear and pale, look at the pictures on the skeeter pee website. they almost look like sprite

Bridochristie, I used must from a red wine (Amarone) so my pee is kinda purple-ish. I just bottled it the other day and have two bottles sitting in the fridge chillin'. I'll try it after a couple more days.

Good point, never considered the must adding it's own colour. I used a sort of apple juice starter thing which was pale. Still lovely though

Just cracked two bottles off the pee I had aging on raspberries. I sweetened as per the original recipe with these as well and they are just not doing it for me. With 2 tsp of sugar added to the glass they taste good, with 3 tsp and ice they are PHENOMENAL. Next batch I make I will hopefully have the keg setup and I will try sparkling and over sweetened.
