I've got 4 liters of Dew that have been sitting out with the caps off for a few days at about 68 degrees. I'll transfer them to a Rossi 4 liter jug tomorrow and pitch the yeast. I'll add some yeast enzyme too I think to help things.
I'm using Montrachet yeast just because I have an extra pack after making up some apfelwein.
Alright guys, after 3 long days of shaking the fizz out I pitched the yeast tonight. It STILL had carbonation after sitting out for 3 days. Not much head space but oh well! OG is 1.05, this is the OG of regular ol' Mt. Dew if you want to tuck that little gem of knowledge away for future use.
Also, the bung up top has a hole in it. for when I airlock it. Right now it's just the "blow hole"
Also pictured it the very appropriate vessel I'll be drinking my Pinot Dew from.
