    I don't understand what going on. Almost the entire first page of the " Skeeter Pee" thread has only posts by crabjoe and myself with the exception of a few. Isn't anyone else making this stuff.

    My first 5 gallon batch came out awesome and I'm going to make plenty more. I can't understand why there isn't a lot more members participating on this forum.

    I'll be sure to document the brew :)

    Participating on this forum and participating in that thread are two entirely different things. I’ve never made skeeter pee. But, maybe someday when I have the time and inclination I’ll crank out a batch. Just enjoying making wine from grapes right now.

    I would imagine a lot of folks are of the same mind.

    After doing 'the recipe' I was under whelmed. I think I can improve on my first effort but will probably wait until closer to spring.

    I make one or two batches of it a year. Pretty much just follow the recipe on the web, not much to say about it, except I always just add yeast, never the lees of another batch. Give it all away to my wife's family, they like sweet wines. I don't drink it myself.

    I also just added the yeast ( EC1118) and it went completely dry in 10 days. It was kept between 75-80 degrees during fermentation.

    What I really like about this is after it's stabilized you can bottle in gallon jugs with different SGs and different flavors, and different degrees of lemon flavor. I just did search on this forum and members posted many ways to do that.

    This is sort of like standing at the end of a buffet line and fussing at people for not selecting some particular offering to eat. It’s personal preference which threads folks choose to be active on, there are no implied or stated requirements for membership in the forum related to thread selection.

    I agree, but bring this is the " Skeeter Pee" forum, I thought there would be a lot more interest.

    I hear ya, it’s been around a long time, lots of skeeter pee has been made. New and exciting to new folks just discovering it, maybe not so much after seeing it for years and years. Same thing for Dragons Blood, great recipe and results, just old hat.

    Yup, I think you're right. The early posts,when Lon first came out with it was very active and unless you're a new member like myself have already tried it and decided if it's for you or not. It's like everything in life, you either like it or not.

    Put me in the "like" column, and although this forum might not be as active as it once was, I went through ALL 53 pages on this forum and got all the help I needed to come out with a wonderful drink.

    So, I say thanks to everyone that contributed at one time or another and special thanks to Lon for coming up with it.

    Just bottled another 23 cases this weekend. Customers love it. I think I made close to 350 gallons this year.
