The lemon juice isn't sufficient to inhibit yeast production.

Regarding the carbonation:

I am guessing its more fizzy right?

I just did a one gallon batch of this basically using the recipe from a few posts previous. i have a question now. It's been in primary for just over a week and is finished fermenting, it's gone from 1.048 down to .992 (measured .992 for 3 straight days). Can I go ahead and stabilize it then backsweeten in a day or two, or do I need to let it sit on the lees longer and then just stabilize in a couple weeks?? Thanks!! very anxious to taste this, its definitely sweet tea weather already!!!
