Hard Lemonade

Well, this may seem a bit girlie, but I think it might be a good experiment and good to have around for the non-beer fanatics. I found a recipe for Hard Lemonade! It’s really simple: just lemonade concentrate, sugar and water. The recipe I found was on homebrewtalk.com and is as follows (thanks USFBull):

  • Enough lemonade concentrate(check label to make sure there is no potassium sorbate) and water to make 5 gallons. (10 cans)
  • 2 pounds sugar
  • 1 pound ultra light dme (more or less depending on target alcohol percentage)
  • 1 pack champagne yeast

I think with some tweaking and prodding, this could be pretty good. I might try a gallon batch to see how it turns out.

    DME = dry malt extract.

    Hey, nice tips. Perhaps I’ll buy a bottle of beer to the man from that chat who told me to visit your site 🙂

    Here is a recipe for a hard lemonade that is dynamite! It’s also easier and cheaper to make than most recipes. You can find it at SkeeterPee [dot] com Click on the recipe tab for the recipe. The FAQ tab has lots of good information to get you off on the right foot. You’ll be the most popular person this summer if you make enough to share with friends.
