Cold crashing just makes the yeasties go dormant. They'll wake up if the temp gets warm. If you want the yeasties dead, use additives or kill via pasteurization....

If you're planning on keeping cold forever, dormant yeast is fine.

Not sure why you would ever warm it up.

Hi - just joined here - quite new to brewing - have done a few turbo ciders etc - but just started a Gallon of this with the addition of some sultanas in the second batch of sugar and water to add some nutrients for the yeats and hopefully a lil more flavour.

My question is - i washed the orange and lemon but with the temperature going down over the hour - assuming any bacteria would still be there - I'm kinda hoping the wash i gave them is enough - but would u bother to maybe put a camden tablet in or have u not had any problems? Sorry if its a newbie question but as i said i'm still attempting things.

Nice one - will report on my progress either way

This stuff was great. In fact, i decided against making skeeter pee this year and just brewed 15 gallons of this instead!! once it finishes fermenting and i stabilize it, then i usually soak a few more tea bags to help strengthen and bring out the tea flavor! THE drink for a hot summer day!! Thumbs up to NukinFuts!

What about 1:1 blend of River Water and Skeeter Pee???
Sounds like a plan to me

I have a question. What size tea bags were used? The small ones or the family size bags? I would like to try this but don't want it to turn out too strong of a tea flavor. I'm thinking it would be the small ones but am not sure.

I used small tea bags but itdepends on how much flavor you want. I made a 1 g batch and still used1 lemon and 1 orange, the lemon over powered everything. So when finished i added more tea, like 1 g to 1 g which meant i cut it in half and had 2 g total. That made it drinkable.

Just started a batch on my Apfelwein yeast cake.

Got an OG of 1.026. Seems kind of low?

Making this now and had a question. Do you leave the orange and lemon in the pail for the duration of the process?
