I plan on making this ahead of time for a 4th of July party and bottling it in 1 gallon jugs with a screw on cap. How long do you think it would keep like this?

On the day of the party I would just pour from the jugs into a dispenser and maybe sweeten it the day of the party?? We have these cool dispensers that we got at Sam's Club during the summer that are two pieces. The main part holds the beverage and has a spout for dispensing and it sits on a bowl shaped stand that you put ice in to keep the beverage cold without watering it down.

Here is the dispenser...we've used it primarily for Trash Can Margaritas: http://www.samsclub.com/sams/shop/pr...812&navAction=

Or search their site for "Unbreakable Beverage Dispenser" if link is dead

I want to make this, but want to carb and bottle it.. would this idea work....Let this ferment out dry, then sweeten with splenda or some other unfermentable.. THEN prime with corn sugar and bottle as I would beer?

If the cap fits tightly (no air entering), it'll keep a long time. Definitely long enough for the Fourth of July.

Started my first batch last Saturday with an OG of 1.094. I started two packets of yeast and pitched them 24 hours later and it's been fermenting nicely since then. Checked the gravity today and I'm at 1.056 today. SWMBO tried the sample today and really likes it. This may be a mainstay in my brewing arsenal. I'm using a 4 1/4 gallon frosting bucket from Walmart to ferment in. I didn't have to stir as per the instructions as it seemed to realy take off right away. I will secondary in the same kind of bucket. Thanks again for this recipe.

Did a few keyword searches with no hits...

What serving pressure is recommended? A normal 12ish or a much higher soda-like PSI?
