tried something similar, also with bread yeast but got a fairly weak, though delicious, result. how much yeast did you pitch? i used about 7g for a gallon batch.

I just brewed my first batch of hard tea and it tastes good. I used 15 Lipton tea bags 8oz honey and 15 oz lemon juice. Also added 1.7 lbs of cane sugar. Ended up fermenting out to 13%. Used ec1118 yeast an after fermentation slowed racked it a few times over several weeks(about 4 weeks) and it turned out pretty good.

The tea is slowly fermenting and it is at 1.04 at this time. When I smell it has a very unique aroma. The simcoe hops are very pronounced but it seems to be having a milder taste as it ferments. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
