    I tried my local stores. Nobody carried lemon juice without preservatives. It’s been a while since I made SP and used ReaLemon last time. Anyone have a link or a SKU#?

    I always just buy the version sold at Wally World. It has some Sodium metabisulphite, but stiring the heck out of it, waiting a day always has worked for me.

    Yeah, I wondered about that pot-meta, so let it dissipate then, overnight or longer?

    Overnite always seems to work for me. It certainly won't hurt to wait longer.

    I was thinking of just emptying the lemon juice in a carboy, give it some good shakes and let it sit for a day or two.

    Thanks.

    The local super (Kroger owned) has this - no preservatives. SKU included to assist. This is Lime Juice, but Lemon should also be available
    On the downside, it only comes in 16oz bottles

    I buy frozen lemon concentrate in order to avoid the preservatives.

    My Skeeter took 3 1/2 weeks to ferment dry. I wasn’t expecting it to take that long. I suspect the preservative could have had something to do with it.

    How much frozen concentrate per gallon or is it at the same rate as the liquid concentrate?

    Thanks!
