not sure if you mean what ive learned in general or what i learned about mt dew.

ill start with the dew. It got us buzzed and didnt taste like much really.

since then ive learned that it is worth the time to get good ingredients and put in the time necessary to make something good.

i mean when i started the dew/gatorade brews i didnt know about air stops, different yeasts, primary/secondary, sanitization, tons of stuff.

I do like the idea of having LOTS of small batches of stuff going...and lots of big batches as well.

tonight I am bottling 28 bottles of a sweet kiwi white wine

OP: are you planning a prison stint? If not I'm not sure why one would want to do this. On the other hand, it'll likely only cost you about $5.00 to try it, so why not?

I have made this, and it wasn't bad. (I used reg. Mt. Dew)

Brew a small beer, extract would be easiest, with regular hops and all, but with less water. Instead of topping off with water, top off with the Dew. Voila, caffeinated citrus'd beer.

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.

When I do I'll update with pics and my SG.

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.
