I am thinking about trying to make a half lemonade and half black tea wine without making 2 different batches and mixing them together. Also without back sweeting with lemonade. Haven't had time to start it yet just want to get a solid recipe first.

Batch size: 6 gallon (us) total:

40 single serve tea bags (13 tea bags per gallon) to make 3 gallons of just tea

2 bottles 32oz real lemon juice. To make just 3 gallons of kind of a skeeter pee.

7 lbs sugar



yeast nutrient

yeast energizer

Yeast either d-47 or ec-1118 have both on hand.

Potassium metabisulfite (Kmeta)

Potassium sorbate (sorbate)

With that much tea I doubt you'd need any extra tannin.
To paraphrase Dr. England - "Off-flavors smooth with time. So do mountains. Brew it right from the start!"
