Re: Sítrónuvín - Skeeter Pee

Hey eddi849, I just saw your question! More than 4 years later jejeje... I still have some skeeter pee :-) A few weeks ago I opened and drank a bottle. It taste good! There were no signs of oxidation which in my opinion is the mayor enemy of aged homemade wine. I used a wine bottle with aluminium sc...

[Til Sölu] 6 gallon (23L) glass carboy - 4000kr

Used 6 gallon glass carboy in perfect conditions. I have six in total.
The reason for selling them is that I do not use them anymore. To fill this carboys all the way to their neck you'll need 24.4 litres of liquid.

Price:
4700 kr per carboy (if you buy only one)
4000 kr per carboy (if you buy 6)

Hi H. A 2-3 years old juice can certainly be used in winemaking perhaps it doesn’t turn up into a great wine, due to juice potential oxidation, but in any case it will be fun! How have you conserved the juice for so long? Is it frozen? Did you add any preservative when you made it? Which preservativ...

Re: Sítrónuvín - Skeeter Pee

Some weeks ago I bottled my skeeter pee. Overall the drink is good: is clear and has very nice flavor. I like it and my friends like it as well. However is in the sour side so next time I'll try to use less juice/more water to bring the pH up a bit.
The one made out of lime is my favorite! :-)
