I'd love to see something like this. Actually having a keg of this around would be a bad thing. I don't even buy cases anymore since I'd just drink it all in a few days.

Mt dew and sprite/sierra mist is pretty much all I drink other than beer.

I'd love a copy of this one too! I know they put OJ in it.. LOL But everything else is a guess.

One thing is for sure, if the generics (MT Lightening) can make up clones that are close to the flavor of MT Dew, we sure can... Just need to put our heads together.

Cheers,

Joe

I think the problem is going to be a lot of special oil and checmicals that we will need. Not just off the shelf grocery store items. This would make it really hard to just play around until we get it right. You would almost need a stocked lab to be able to do it.

What about it? You would still need a mt dew recipe but just use sugar or simple syrup instead of HFCS.

Yeah I think it's got brominated vegetable oil in it. Good luck finding that.

The brominated vegetable oil in Mt. Dew is to help keep oil-based (citrus, probably) flavors in suspension. You could perhaps use some other kind of emulsifier, but if there was something else that worked as well *and* was as cheap, the soda companies would be using it. Wikipedia says BVO is illegal to use in India, so perhaps find someone from there to read off the ingredients of locally-produced Mt. Dew (if there is such a thing).

Yes, that *is* beer. Water, malt, hops, and yeast mean it's beer. Go ahead and try a glass...
