Skeeter Pee – How to make Lemon Wine

by brew beer on September 1, 2011

This is how I made Skeeter Pee. Skeeter Pee is a lemon wine that is fermented with a “Slurry” from the first rackings of a batch of wine. I don’t make wine so I’m going to show you how I’ve made my Skeeter Pee by making a small starter. For the whole recipe please visit www.skeeterpee.com Also check out the creator of this drink on youtube. www.youtube.com

    @DevonHomeBrew Well I don’t think its a concentrate. Its just pure lemon juice. I’m sure you can find a similar product in England.

    @weirdbeer I guess i can find a product like it then, and why did you need to leave the sugar on low for 30 mins?????

    @DevonHomeBrew Adding an Acid (in our case the Lemon Juice) and then holding it at that temperature turns the sugar into “invert sugar” which is easier to break down. Honestly, I’m not sure that part is actually necessary but its what the original recipe called for so I did it. I plan to do a bunch of experiments with this stuff by changing things up. But I figured I had to do it a couple times to the original recipe otherwise I’ll never know if I made it better or worse.

    I don’t think I would drink something with the word “pee” in the name.

    @ChadzBeerReviews lol. I know what you mean. I didn’t name it though, and you’d be missing out.

    @immolateus I have one right now thats about ready to bottle done with 2 bottles of ReaLemon, and 1 bottle of Lime. Its a darker colour but I think its going to be better than the original. Think 7up!

    Great video! Thanks for posting it! I make this often in a variety of flavors (strawberry, raspberry and most recently, peach) and it’s always a hit!

    One thing I do if you dont have a slurry and are worried about it not turning out I put in frozen strawberries (3-1 lbs to 5-1lbs bags), 3 12oz bags of blueberries or any type of fruit you like. I put mine in a bag so that you dont have a lot of stuff floating around when you move to the carboy after fermemtation process. When the stuff is ready to bottle start your bottle process. If you wish to try different flavors you can add unsweetened koolade packs to the mix.

    @tommonger Cool. How do you add the extra flavors?

    Part 2 – after you bottle your wine in 1/2 gallon jugs you can add your flavors of koolade to the mix. You can use stuff like strawberry, lime, raspberry, watermelon, any flavor you think would taste good with a hint of lemon.. :P Enjoy!

    quality video, fo. real nice. I am very intrigued by this skeeter pee….i just might have to try it.

    To add extra flavors just put your skeeter pee in 1/2 gallon jugs and leave just a bit of room for the flavoring. Put about 1/8 cup to 1/4 cup of water in a glass and add your flavoring to the cup and mix. Then pour the flavoring into your 1/2 gallon jug and stir up a bit. Let sit for another week then bottle. You can also use 2 packages per gallon or adjust flavor to your likeness. Experiment with the flavors… Tastes like wine coolers with a kick :P
    If you dont backsweeten use sweetened

    @HokieHomeBrew Thanks! I’m not gonna lie. This video was the most work out of any I’ve edited before. I almost gave up.

    Think I said before if you back sweeten use the unsweetened flavoring and if you dont you can use the sweetened flavoring for this. You can use any brand you dont have to stick to the name brands. Have fun and tell us what flavor is your favorite…

    Looks very cool Fo. Nice vid. How much did it cost to make this?

    @weirdbeer For my strawberry, I used slurry from my strawberry wine… and… added a couple cans of strawberry daiquiri mix! For my raspberry batch, I used raspberry slurry and added seedless REAL raspberry preserves. And for peach, I used peach slurry and will be adding reduced peach/white grape juice.

    @weirdbeer Hahah I bet. I was very impressed. I am far too lazy to do all that editing, but it sure would be nice. Great vid.
