i dont have a recipe but my guess is to get a lot of lemons together, add a lot of clear invert sugar (or just white cane sugar, it probably doesnt matter a whole lot) and pitch with a champagne yeast. perhaps make 5 gallons of lemonade first, then add a lot of extra sugar, and the yeast. i think a champagne yeast would be best though im not really sure. this is a good idea, i think i'll try it this summer.
