It'll taste awesome. Try it with bread yeast, or just let it sit out and let wild yeast do their thing. I make this a few times per year.

Oh yea, me too. One thing I've found though is I just make it directly in the toilet. That way, the water is already there, I just have to dump in the sugar and yeast! Be sure and pee in there first though just to make sure everything is sanitized.

I fermented gatorade powder and table sugar with bread yeast once. Smelled like booty. Didnt have the cajones to taste it. I sill have it though (its aging).

My recomendation: do it, see what comes out, then post about it.

What relevance does this have to a beer forum?

A kids science forum would be a better place to ask..
Or a still forum.
