Good morning! I am wondering, the skeeter pee site says to add sugar and stir til dissolved. Is it okay to add the sugar by turning it into a simple syrup instead? Or is there a reason that it be granulated? Thanks

I've done it both ways. With the syrup you can pour it into the new carboy and transfer. No stirring. Either way works though.

Both ways, eh? How kinky. I've also done both, but dissolving it first makes more sense to me.

Hey Apple Jack. :-) my wine cleared and I sweetened it. It is absolutely the best stuff ever! My first home brew ready to drink! Anyway, it does taste like margarita mix. I am ready to make more because this wont last. In changing the recipe, have you tried mixing orange in this? By chance? To replicate the orange liquer in a margarita?

This is the first time I've made this recipe so I haven't tried any new variations yet. I actually haven't even bottled it yet haha.

Jack Keller, wine guru, suggests sweetening with Finest Call Triple Sec syrup.

That is what I'm planning on doing.

This was made and ready for consumption in a four day period? Asking as it sounds like something fun for Thanksgiving.

Mine took 10 days. In total. Only because I had to let the key lime flavor mellow a little. Right now it is perfect to my tongue. I like sour though.
