Fermenting: 23/07/2005 Bottled: 07/08/2005
I’ve been informed that apparently there are people in this world who do not like beer. I can understand that – everyone has different tastes and preferences. Apparently there are also people in the world who do not like alcohol in any form whatsoever. If you are one of those people, there’s probably very little I can do for you.
The non-beer loving alochol drinkers, though, I do have a couple of options. In the past I have made alcoholic cider and ginger beer, today I am making alcoholic lemonade.
It’s not too difficult, to be honest: lemons, sugar, water. Let’s see how it comes out.
Brewing notes: This didn’t have much activity happening during the first week. So on the 29/07/2005 I proofed another sachet of yeast, and pitched it in. This time there was CO2 bubbling out after just 15 minutes. So fermentation time is really 10 days, not 17.
Tasting notes: Well, it does taste a bit like lemons and it is alcoholic. But most people avoid it. It was once theorised that I had discovered a new form of ‘Rocket Fuel’. 3/10
