Ok been 17 days and stored it three times over that time. Air lock is STILL bubbling... Is that right? Is it because of the lemon and orange that are in there too? Do I need to worry about it?

OG was 1.042 ish... About 5% mark. Just took out the orange and lemon (I had cut into quarters), and took a reading of 1.000... Added ten more bags of tea cause it tasted good but tea wasn't overly strong... Am wanting to drink it a bit early... This weekend if possible (any issues with that anyone knows of?)... But air lock was still bubbling about once every two seconds when I did all this... Was that the fruit?

I could see this dropping a few more points for another day or so. But I would definately say this is something to drink asap.

Cool... So it's in a primary brew bucket... Was thinking of racking off to another brew bucket and taking back to my parents house a few hours away so my bro and I can see how far we can get through in a weekend... Leaving fri night to do so.
U think it will be good if I rack it Thursday and roll? Wasn't planning to pasteurise... Just drink as is over ice.

I would think so. Maybe take your auto siphon and a growler to fill so you don't gotta go into the bucket for every glass. Sounds like a plan

Well... Did wonders... Sat night was hit! All this stuff needed was a few tea spoons of sugar to let it roll down the throat a lil easier... Killed 3 gallons in 1 night... Good times, good times.
Great recipe
