I have used the left over Fpacs to flavor Tea Wine....had a Wildberry batch and a Peach Apricot batch. Waste not want not!This is a bit on a tangent, but somewhat related. I recently made a batch of Moscato and reached the desired flavor and sweetness without using the entire F-pac. I hate to waste anything so I mixed the residual of the F-pac with a little simple syrup and nearly an equal volume of plain vodka. The end result is quite delicious, especially over a couple ice cubes. I know now what to do with unused F-pacs.

Can someone tell me exactly where i can buy Everclear near Pittsbugh, Pa.Starting a 1 1/2 gallon test batch of lemon/limecello. I used the zest of 25 limes, 15 lemons and 1.75 liters of 195 proof Everclear.
Im excited to make some limoncello, thank you for posting this! I havent yet read the entire thread but I have a lot of orange trees on my property that are ripening and I want to make use of them somehow... has anyone made the using orange and if so how does it come out? And compared to limoncello? Thanks for the input!
I've never seen a recipe that calls for the juice - or honey for that matter. I'm tempted to try it with the juice just for fun. But I think the honey would alter the flavor.Have any of you guys added the lemon juice like this guy? BTW, what are you guys doing with the skinless lemons?
Adding the juice is an interesting thought, I may try that next time. The honey, I'm with you would really already the flavor. This certain would be much higher alcohol than the one I make.I've never seen a recipe that calls for the juice - or honey for that matter. I'm tempted to try it with the juice just for fun.

A bit. When I didn't fine the juice, it gained some bitterness the longer it sat on the lees (pith). In a later batch, when I immediately hit it with bentonite, that reduced the bitterness a lot.Any bitterness from the pith?
Al, I have not lived in Pittsburgh for more than 40 years but they used to sell it in the State Stores under names like "Golden Grain" or something like than. I believe it was 180 or 190 proof. Have you tried a State Store?Can someone tell me exactly where i can buy Everclear near Pittsbugh, Pa.
