Recently on my favorite Radio show, TBTL
on 97.3 fm here in Seattle, they were lamenting the lameness of SPARX energy-malt beverage.
They say that as ridiculous as sparks is- they want to make their own version. Naturally I volunteered my little homebrew setup to creating the official TBTL energy-booze.
Here's the thought process input would be really appreciated-
Take hard lemonade recipe,
Jack up standard gravity with some dextrose,
Make big starter with dme,
Add yeast nutrient,
Add caffiene powder and flavor (I'm thinking goji-juice)
Any thoughts? Hard lemonade recipes that have fermented nicely? experiences adding stuff post ferment (which seems like it would be a no-no)?
