Hard Lemonade

Post by brwmistr » 5 years ago

I think I have a hard lemonade that is either slow or stuck due to the acid content. I thought I would add more yeast nutrient to it to give it a kick or should I stir the sugar up that is on the bottom?

I had the same problem last year and repitched with more yeast. I really helps to make up a good starter too.

What did your lemonade come out to? Mine is clearing now and it's at 7.75% but not much pink color anymore just a pale almost see thru.

So at bottling this was very tart from the acid to serve I took another can of concentrate and added two liters of fermented and mixed it. This was not bad and packed a punch. If I make this again I will use a different yeast as the 1118 yeast had an after taste even when mixed.

Sorry for the very late report.
Mine didn't turn out had to dump it! not very happy with that result. Sorry to hear you losing a carboy. Those are getting pricey to replace.
