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.

Just put mine in to secondary but added another 24 tea bags to raise the tea taste, any thoughts on how long to leave them in !
