I'm not sure what you are getting at, but it would be no more "wasted" sugars than a larger gravity brew would be. Could you explain a little further your statement?

No problem, I am always glad to help with the "out of the ordinary" on brewing. I do things a little different than most. What you are wanting to do is what the big boys do, so they prove it is possible (I know it is fizzy water, but it would be if they didn't blend it also).
