I gave it an extra day. It was at 1.062. Froze overnight and refrigerated during the day. Cracked it open last night, the wife approves. Next time I'm gonna use frozen fruit and table sugar. I think the brown sugar had too much residual caramel like taste. Kinda masked the fruitiness a little.

Stuck in freezer on day 3 with FG of 1.060. By the evening the drink was nice and slushy. Taste tested with lady friend and she loved it. I even liked it so much I was drinking it instead of my beer.
Sound good. I'm new to this and this sounds like an easy start. Thank you for posting the idea.

When you say limeade, what kind? I assume a non carbonated version?
