Is there a reason this recipe uses two packets of yeast? Seems one would be sufficient, no?

Is it necessary to boil all the water you are using? or can I just filter the last 3 gallons?

Just wanted to say thanks. I brewed up a batch of this, leaving half unsweetened, and sweetening the other half with 1 lb of sugar, after batch pasteurizing. It was delicious, and everyone who has tried it has raved about it!

I found that leaving the orange and lemon throughout, left it really orange and lemony....but still not bad.

Tested and tasted today. Pretty good but I want more sweetness so I racked to a 6 gallon carboy with sorbate and Campden and added a gallon of lemonade. Will taste it next weekend and see. If all goes as planned I'm going to keg this one. Pretty excited about it.

Tasted pretty good after a week in secondary so I went ahead and kegged it today. I had four 22 oz bombers full after I filled the keg. I'll let you know how it goes in another week or two.
