Well, then, my friend, you and brewingmeister apparently don't think acerglyn is a mead, nor pyment, cyser, or any other melomel.

To brewingmeister: the OP never said he was making a traditional mead. Also, what you describe is a show mead.

What repercussions you think would happen if you boil down a can or 6pack of throwback mt dew to a syrup and throw that in? I dont think there would be enough preservatives to affect fermentation.. Idk what impact on the flavor it would have.. Do they even make the throwback anymore?

Yeah, I'm wondering because with most artificial flavoring and such when heated will lead to a astringent/tannin like mouth feel wich would be no bueno!!

This is what I was thinking as well, if you get it reduced enough it will just be sugar/flavour/food colouring and perhaps tiny amounts of the other stuff.

This has got me thinking of all sorts of ideas now. What other soft drinks would potentially work well when boiled down and added to a mead...or cider?

What about an energy drink? Turbomead, anyone?

If it's a energy mead you want, I would just throw a bottle of this in at bottling/kegging time
