I love watching these guys. Interested to see how yours turns out!I don’t normally copy recipes, but this looked intriguing!
Mojito Kilju from CS Mead channel.
Mine is slightly different to theirs, as I don’t agree with some of their methods. Here is what I put in mine:-
1.2kg granulated sugar
2 x packets fresh mint (leaves only)
Zest and juice of one lime.
Yeast Nutrient (plenty!)
This is what it looks like! Pond water at the moment, but apparently it turns out fantastic so we’ll see!

Start gravity 1.090.
I have put glycerine in my airlock for a trial as I've just bought a litre bottle. It's bubbling steadily along - I put the yeast in about 19 hours ago
Video below of original recipe.
I am going to be doing a series of 'cocktail' flavoured wines next I think, if this turns out well. This has inspired me!
Ha ha, thanks John! We like to cook too but it’s hard juggling the two so you don’t end up changing your name to Willy and going to live in the sea ha ha!Hi Lisa
Coming round to your house for drinks must be like a dream come true.
Or at least it will be when some of your wines get a bit of age on them.
Aw no, don’t say that! You have all of us though, we are your family.Hi Lisa
I can imagine you put on an amazing spread for your family Treasure it,
It comes but once in a lifetime..
A luxury i once enjoyed myself.
And long may it last.
Not for me though my family have all passed away.
You are most welcome. More lime is a good idea I think - I did a second batch and it was better with the extra lime. Also two limes needed at the end, but depends on your tastes and how sweet you like it. I like mine sweet so I stopped the fermentation at 1.014.I love the sound of this, you've inspired me to try a gallon I added a bit more lime juice at the beginning and used 1.5kg of light brown sugar but other than that I've used the same recipe. Thanks for the inspiration.
