    I know the recipe calls to add 64oz 1st then when SG his 1.050 to add the last 32oz. My question is why?

    What's the reason to wait to add the last bottle? Is it because when it's 1st started, that you don't want to acidic of an environment so the yeast can take off? If that's the reason, why not just start with 1 bottle to start then add the last two bottles when SG hits around 1.050? Why not start with 1 bottle, add then 2nd on day two, then add the last on day 3? Will the taste come out different if the directions aren't followed?

    Thanks!

    LOL.. Thanks for the vote of confidence.. Yesterday, my lemon juiced showed up. Last night, I cleaned my primary fermentation bucket and bottled 5 gallons of RO water. If all goes, I'll be picking up some some sugar and starting my pee after work is over...

    Wish me luck! This will be my 1st attempt at "wine". hehehehehe
