This is what I got just to try before I spend $55 on a box of Mt. Dew. I was with my wife at Wally World and they had this Soda Stream thing. I was looking at the different flavors and this lady came up to me and said that the Mountain Mist tastes just like Mt. Dew!! So I read that one single bottle of syrup makes 12 liters... Enough for one 3 gallon carboy!!! Tell me what you think, I have doubts about the Splenda in it but maybe it will break down when I boil the syrup?? Here is a couple of pics of the bottle.

Here we go!!! I started a 3 gallon carboy with the Soda Stream Fountain Mist syrup.

1 16.9oz Soda Stream Fountain Mist syrup
4 lbs sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon Yeast Energizer
3 teaspoons Yeast Nutrient
1 package Lalvin EC-1118
About 2 1/2 gallons water

I took the bottle of syrup and added it to a large sauce pan. Fill the same bottle with water, Shake it up and add it to the sauce pan. I set it to a medium heat and whisked the syrup about every minute for 10 minutes. Let the syrup cool.

This uses a 3 gallon carboy.

Add the syrup and sugar into the carboy then fill up with water.
Then add the energizer and nutrient and stir until all of the sugar is dissolved. I let the mix sit for around 10hrs until I pitched the yeast.
Add your airlock and wait

When I checked the starting SG it was right at 1.070
