Joe's Hard Sun Tea

Joe's Hard Sun Tea

Specialty Beer • Extract • 1 gal


Since the hot weather's been hitting us, I've been really enjoying those hard iced teas as of late, though I think they'd be a lot better if they were less sugary & more tea-like. Here's my soulution.

    White Labs WLP715 Champagne

    Classic yeast, used to produce champagne, cider, dry meads, dry wines, or to fully attenuate barley wines/ strong ales. Can tolerate alcohol concentrations up to 17%. Neutral.


Take two 2 quart glass containers & add 6 tea bags of organic ceylon tea to each & fill with spring water. Leave them in the sun for 5 hours. Then add the liquid to your brewpot, add 2 lbs of honey, bring to a light boil & immediately shut off the heat. Cool down, add to 1 gallon fermentor, pitch yeast & wait :)
