Hard lemonade was created by Serindipaty
Whilst not technically brewing. I have a tonne of lemons on my tree, figured why not give them a ferment.

Anyone made any? I guess pH of lemon juice might be a bit much for most yeast... But can always counter with a bicarbonate and dilution. Also doing a limoncello but that's not as exciting to watch.

Recipes I've seen are about 3L of lemon juice to make 20L with a bit of honey ginger and cinnamon in some.
Anyone tried one that they recommend?

Cant say I have made it mate, I think with all those kind of things, ginger ale etc, the real challenge comes with the back sweetening, I think thats the main problem I see people have.
Seltzers are getting huge and thats virtually just sugar and water fermented.. but I guess it would if you make your own natural lemon cordial or concentrate, add as desired.

Ahh yeah I suppose back sweetening to taste before bottling might be the go. Was just going to load up on lactose in the "mash".
