Yeah, and fermenting real sugar ends up taking like crap. Assuming the SUPER acidity and preservatives allow it to ferment in the first place.

Mt Dew is the most acidic soda on the market.

I'm all for experiments, but I can tell you this is gonna taste horrible if it ferments.

Put a little Blue Maui schnapps in Mt Dew for a good time.

Actually the most acidic are RC cola, coke, cherry coke, and Dr. Pepper. with a PH of 2.39. Mt. Dew is a PH of 3.1 which is right around a white wine.

I think it will mess up the Mt Dew flavor by breaking down alot of things. I've had Dew left in the sun before. It wasn't tasty... you're probably best to let it set uncapped for a day to let the CO2 bubble off. Shake the **** out of it and let it set another day uncapped, maybe in the fridge if there's not alot of CO2 left.

I've never seen mold grow in soda bottles in the trash or otherwise, only juice and what not.

I think you'd be better off adding vodka to dew.

I have seen mold grow in Mt. Dew. But it took a while. I wonder if you degas it and let it sit for 24 hours without the top if it would have less preservatives.

This stuff sounds gross, but I am interested in how it turns out.

Mt. Dew with Vodka is great though. You can mix them 50/50 and barely tell the difference. Makes for great public events.

in my college days i did was able to ferment mt dew. the taste was like a watered down mt dew.

ok i didnt know anything back then but this is what i did

let the dew go flat
sprinkle in bread yeast
screwed cap on super loose
left in closet 14-20 days
drank

i also did this with gatorade. same results.

just wanted to say that it is possible....

again since then ive learned a ton and made some good and proper drinks.. but i might try this again just to see what its like.
