Just mix up everything except the lemon juice. After about three hrs it will be rolling, Add all three bottles of lemon and forget. Mike

Do you think 3711 would work for SP or would the highly acidic environment cause problems?
I've made it with US 05 and WLP English ale yeat and both turned out great and got the gravity under 1. Go for it.

I'm on about my third Skeeter Pee. I don't put all the lemon juice in at first; I just add one bottle. Let the yeast multiply for a few days, and when it's really bubbling good I add the second bottle of lemon juice. In another week, I'll add the last half a bottle (I make 4 gallon batches) I've never had a problem getting it to start using a packet of EC1118 or Premier Cuvee.

I'm using the 71B dregs from a batch of cider this time, and it's going a little slower but still chugging along.
