I add juice at the same time that I stabilize, though I usually add some extra lemon juice, the lime going in during fermentation. I do one cup lemon juice to 2 cups sugar and make a syrup out of it. If you add extra juice post clearing, you'll have to wait on it to clear again. Since Skeeter pee isn't really known for being made by very patient wine makers, I suggest just doing all the steps all at the same time (kmeta, sorbate, sweetening, degassing, sparkolloid).

Only 7 bottles remain of my most recent batch of Lon's original recipe.
Going to the store tonight for more lemon and lime juice.
The wife likes the original best, so I have to make a batch just from her.

I made a tropical. A little age helps. My wife even likes it.

Good Day Everyone,

I believe that I have read most of the post in this thread and I was wondering. Does or have any of you make a lemon lime wine from raw fruit. Does anyone have a recipe for a wine using the actual fruit instead of juices from concentrate. I am about to start a wine using the fruit and I was hoping for some help. I am looking for something a little more 7-Up or Sprite tasting as oppose to lemonade tasting.

I have 17 pounds of lemons coming in and 10 pounds of limes. I am hoping to puree this all down to use in my must. After taking the acid level I have a calculating app that will tell me how much sugar and water I need to add to get around and SG of 1.100. I also plan on making this a sparkling wine and have so sweetness to it.

Any help or thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks Hallie
