That one only estimates calories, I was more concerned with the carb count. But thank you! Do we know who figured out the calorie count, or how they worked it out?

Nope, I knew I was using Splenda to sweeten and planned to carbonate, so I didn't use k-meta or sorbate. 3/4 cup of dextrose to 5 gallons of SP.

Last time I went into detail, the whole thread...

Has anyone ever calculated the nutritional values for this stuff? Is there a way to figure out how many calories, carbs, etc. are in a serving?

Can anyone spare a clue for how do deal with 50+ bottles of SP with presumably dead yeast, but with dextrose added (3/4 cup, intended to carbonate the bottles).

Should I dump them all back into a...

Let's see. I started it on 9-3, added the slurry from a batch of Apfelwein (originally a pack of Montrachet yeast) on 9-5, had good activity by the next day. Gravity was 1.050 on 9-9 so I added the...

This is a solid theory, but I didn't use any of those since I knew I wasn't going to be sweetening with sugar. I didn't use the sparkolloid or anything either, for what that's worth. I just waited...

So I've tried a few bottles of SP and they are not carbonated at all after almost a month. Is it possible that the yeast was dead? I used dextrose at the normal amount (3/4 cup to 5 gallons) for...

Just putting some bottles in the fridge now to try tonight. The sucralose shouldn't carbonate; it's just concentrated liquid Splenda so I don't think that's fermentable.

Nope, didn't have any energizers or nutrients or anything when I started the batch. The main fermentation was strong and short, IIRC.

No airlock activity. It's been long done. I was just waiting it out in hopes of getting rid of the sulfur smell.
I'll get it out of there today unless someone tells me otherwise!

Thank you!

Thank you! I will try this! So do you think it will work to keg/carb it, and then rack it back into a carboy and let it sit in a corner and think about what it's done for a couple months?
