I'm gonna make a mead using mountain do instead of water sooo say for a gallon batch I'm ill use a pound and 1/2 of honey melted down with say 1/3 gallon of water then the rest be mountain dew I think it would would and the sugar in mw would aid in producing food for the yeast and be sweet along with the honey. It's a shot in the dark but I think it would be pretty darn good my two cents wort of course.

A real genius would know your creation wouldn't be called mead.

good luck with your skeeter pee though.

You are going to have a hard time getting the yeast to take hold in the soda, because of the preservatives contained in Mountain Dew. Sodium Benzoate, the chief preservative in MD, will at the very least inhibit healthy yeast growth, and at worst kill the yeast outright.

I've heard of people fermenting straight cola with a good pitch of yeast. I don't think it should be a problem diluted.

Theres a thread on here with someone trying to ferment mountain dew throwback. Dont think it went well but might be worth hunting down.

OK, genius, why don't you educate him: why wouldn't it be mead, since the primary fermentable sugar will be honey?

traditional mead is water, honey and yeast...nothing else.

the hbt wiki has a list of variants; http://www.homebrewtalk.com/wiki/index.php/Mead

what he is attempting would be more of a skeeter pee energy drink
