Skeeter Pee

We aged Skeeter Pee aka Lemon Wine for a WHOLE YEAR. Was this a GREAT idea or a REALLY BAD idea?

As a wine ages, its tannins slowly undergo polymerization, a reaction that binds them together in long chains. Once bound together, tannins fall to the bottom of the bottle as sediment, lose their ability to bind with other compounds, and the aged wine loses its astringent qualities and starts to taste mellower. So did this process help or hinder our Skeeter Pee?

Skeeter Pee

We Finally Made Skeeter Pee – Why is it Called Skeeter Pee? Lemonade wine. Lemon wine? Why call it skeeter pee? What does it have to do with mosquitos anyway?

“The development of Skeeter Pee is attributed to an adventurous winemaker from Minnesota named Lon DePoppe who, thirsty for something unique, came up with what is essentially fermented lemonade. Thanks to a rather generous dose of table sugar, Skeeter Pee typically clocks in with a high level of alcohol while purportedly maintaining its easy-drinking, palate pleasing appeal.” https://brulosophy.com
