My initial effort, though simple, was somewhat laclusture and not in the spirit of this forum at all I think. Sprite Vodka Ice.. Seriously but, its just something I want to have a bit of fun with, Ive already got 5L of mead bubbling away, but that's months away from drinking, and the kegs are busy gassing. I'll probably just knock up 10 liters or so and bottle it in PET's, store it in the cupbord and roll it out at a party. I remember there use to be that 'Two Dogs' stuff around, dont know if you can still get it, never realy looked, but from memory it was very bitter. Would you add lactose to your own brew to sweeten it up? Mmmm-lemon and lactose.. cheers.
