Default Coke cola wine

Iv heard of some people making wine, or some type of alcohol out of soda pop. Some sodas have yeast killing preservatives, others don't. From what i read, coke cola doesn't contain any, as well as mountain dew,
So i mixed coke cola with some sugar and added some fermenting yeast out of my already fermenting bottle of wine, (not the yeast cake at the bottom). What are the chances of this fermenting into some alcohol?

Coke is quite acidic, a pH 2.5 ~ 4.2 range. Ever see how it cleans pennies or dissolves an egg?

I have heard that you can successfully ferment Coke but it tastes really really nasty.

Well it appears to be fermenting, so i will let you know in a few days if it comes out good or bad,
Fingers crossed, this is rather an experiment.

I have an experiment that I have been fooling around with, Mt Dew wine. I used the syrup and made 3 gallons of it. The other day I had stabilized it and this weekend I will be adding Super Kleer. It's been a fun project but man... It tastes like rocket fuel!!!

As i explore this my mind starts wondering, what about fermenting energy drinks? Haha unless there is too much **** in it for the yeast. Which is most likely the case.

why would you do this when you can go to the store and get a concentrate that will blow this away.....you would be better off just making a rum and coke my friend. coca cola is soda, it is made with ingredients intended for soda not wine.

Why do anything? Because fermenting stuff is a hobby! You never know when you may stagger onto the next big thing
