Yeah, they are sugar. Anyone tried using Junior Mints or Mentos yet?

Once the wind has been broken, it cannot be fixed.

If you kill your yeast, the carbo drops won't work.

Of course, there is always still cider...

Also, you could add a touch of concentrate or dexrose and some neutral yeast to bottle carb if you "must" (har...) have it carbed.....or just use ale yeast instead of champagne yeast to begin with to not ferment it as dry.
