Default Hard iced tea

I decided to attempt to make a hard iced tea. I started with 3 gallons of Arizona iced tea and a gallon of tea brewed on the stove. I mixed 4 pounds of corn sugar and 1 pound of honey into the boil and used champagne yeast. It has been fermenting for 3 weeks now and according to gravity reading is only half done. How long should fermentation take? And I just racked it into another car boy tonight.

It could tale another month or two to finish and then youmay have to age it for a while. I like the simple method for hard Iced tea a 5 gal Igloo Cooler fill with Ice add a 1/2 gal of vodka, 2 1/2 gal of Brewed iced tea and stirr. You can use Instant Ice tea Mix if you really want easy and you can drink it the same day

i was seriously thinking of doing something like this with Arizona Arnold Palmer.
The man who intoxicates himself on bad whisky is sometimes moved to kill his wife and set his house on fire, but the victim of applejack is capable of blowing up a whole town with dynamite and of reciting original poetry to every surviving inhabitant.
