started skeeter pee 1/28/20 , EC-1118 , SSG 1080, i use a cordless drill to stir using a stainless steel mayo stirrer, i start my skeeter pee's with 2 qt lemon juice per 6 gallon water, stirred today as i do everyday during ferment, SG down to 1020, added more yeast energizer and 10 lbs sugar brought me back to 1040, once the alcohol kills my EC -1118 then i add more lemon juice so i end up with 1 qt lemon concentrate per gallon water, then will rack to carboys to clear, takes a couple rckings using a 1 micron filter, when it's ready to bottle i get a 6 & 1/2 carboy pour a fifth of PGA (EVERCLEAR 190 PROOF) INTO THE 6 & 1/2 CARBOY RACK 6 gallon skeeter pee into that, turn my other AIO wine pump, (thanks steve) and bottle , using another 1 micron filter on the bolleing one as well, 1 micron on all whites, 5 micron on all reds, never made a kit, and never made any proper wines,, lol grape type wines, i am sweet country wines to the bone, but they allow me to kick around, and save my neck when i hit a problem,
