wrong! The sugar in a pepsi is pretty much 100% fermentable. I fermented a 2-litre bottle of coke and it's FG was below 1. Fructose is a monosacharride that yeasties will have no problem eating. Careful with bottle bombs there...

MOOOTHHHER!! I confused lactose for fructose...and I was a biochemistry major.
Well I guess I will just crack the lid of the 3-liter a few days in.

Actually, Pepsi was the better choice. After all, if you're going to ruin a good beer there's no reason to compound the error and ruin a good coke too!

the verdict is in...

It carbonated just fine, but tasted terrible as many of you so wisely told me. Oh well, I am stubborn. Curiousity satified.

It is rather disturbing to think that the sugar in 12 oz of pepsi is equal to 3/4 cup of corn sugar. Seems like alot to me. I'm sure coke has the same amount if not more, but just something I never thought about before.

Incidently, I had a Bock that was a little over the top that I blended it with Dr Pepper and it tasted pretty good. I saved the batch that way.
Radler is actually an alright ... beverage? At like 2% you cannot get a buzz from it. Good tho. Like a pils and sprite 50/50.
