Why not make a 1 gal and just pour a can or two of the Dew in it after its done. If the "mead" is fermented dry, there might be enough sodium benzoate it to keep the extra sugar ur adding to it from fermenting any further. Then you will have all the Dew flavor.

I want to try to make it using the mead from so the flavor is straight i don't want to make some mead then add mountain dew I would think it would be noticeable to taste both drinks as for I am going for one flavor if you know what I mean

Right: backsweetening with Dew.

I like the idea of letting bees make honey from Mountain Dew syrup.

ARISE, ZOMBIE THREAD! :-D

Facetious remarks notwithstanding, what about just buying throwback syrup? The soda at soda fountains comes in concentrated form, so you wouldn't have to boil it down and risk caramelization destroying the flavor you're trying to impart.

Basically make a batch like the wine cooler recipes you see on you tube just using honey rather than sugar. Make a traditional mead and flavor with syrup. Done! I have experimented around with some weird stuff and you usually end up with a hot mess. So make your favorite mead recipe like a nice orange blossom mead and just flavor with syrup as you like with an additional hit of Camden 12 hours before flavoring. The rest of the preservatives in the syrup should keep it from fermenting.
