"Brew" Day - Heated 2 gallons of water, 1/2 crushed campden tablet, and 4lbs of table sugar to a boil. Boiled for 5 minutes, turned off the heat and added 1TB yeast nutrient, 1TB Lemon Juice, and 2 tsp Yeast Energizer. Chilled in the sink in a water bath until temp was 85 degrees & added 1 TB lemon juice. Poured into a sanitized fermenter, topped up with cold water to reach 5 gallons & added yeast. Left in the basement to ferment in the mid to upper 60's. Didn't take a gravity reading, but should be around 1.037 based on what Beersmith lists.

1/17/2021 - Used this batch to top up two half kegs full of the Amoretti Black Cherry seltzer I made that had too much ctiric acid added.
