You know, I have had a lot of fun playin around with this Dew wine. I even told my wife that it tasted bad, I could dump it without getting upset because I have maybe $15 total into it.

If this really turns out good after back sweetening with the syrup, I will invest in the 5 gallon box for sure!!!

Here is the Mt. Dew wine. I started this on 8/3/12 with a SG of 1.070. Today the SG is .992

And the verdict? Is it drinkable?

As of right now it needs to mellow out, There is a lot of alcohol and a strong aftertaste. I will give it a few weeks then I will back-sweeten with a little syrup.

Has anyone had thought to overloading the yeast with sugar, pushing it above its ABV tolerance in order to sweeten the final product?

If his stuff tastes like rocket fuel now then what do you think would happen with further stressed yeast in a Higher Gravity must and a higher ABV? It is usually better to get your gravity and ABV right first, then back sweeten.

I wonder if using the individual ingredients for mtn dew, without the preservatives would work.

I don't quite know that you could make "wine" from it, but you definitely could make something boozy from it!
I think so too.
