I don't want to sound like a snob, so I didn't say much besides "it'll taste bad". Oh, I've never tried it so I'm not speaking from experience here. I just have many years of experience behind me. There is a reason sugar wash is distilled. If it tasted great right out of the fermenter, don't you think more people would do it? Even really high ABV "good" wines taste like rocket fuel for the first five years. A fermented sugar wash just isn't an ideal drink.

I have never eaten ice cream with spaghetti sauce, either. But I have enough experience in food to know it wouldn't taste good. Same with this instance- you don't have to have personally have tasted it to know it won't taste good.

It'll get you drunk, no doubt. There'll be plenty of alcohol in it. If you can gag it down, it'll do the trick.

I hope you do try it, and report back with your experiences. Then we can all benefit from the experiment.

I tried this once with an "apple wine" when I first startedout trying to make wine. I ended up with something around 16% alc and terribly sweet. I couldn't even drink the crap. Gave it away.

yep, I used turbo yeast and apple, poured it out in front yard. Stripped all the flavor out was jet fuel all the way and tasted like crap. Seems like you have yourself stuck in a space that allows taste to not count and only alcohol content. Follow direction, and use some Champagne yeast, Alcohol will be high and the stuff will taste fairly good. Only way it will taste good will be with age. If you just want a buzz, go to costco, buy some cheap Vino kits and make enough to get ripped.

I think on this forum that is pretty well taken for granted.
