Mountain Dew wine sounds weird, but Human Echoes tutorial on YouTube for making Mountain Dew wine is informative. While watching this video, it seemed as if I was watching a science experiment because of the background music and supplies used. All of the supplies from the video is bought from a local brewing supply store, and some of them are required for the best results. This is an informative YouTube tutorial, and I find it amazing how much I am learning/how much it takes to be careful about making Mountain Dew wine. I do not like Mountain Dew, but I would be interested in what it would taste like in wine form.
- non-carbonated mountain dew
- champagne yeast
First, pour the mountain dews in the jars and let them sit for a little while. If you don’t let the sodas completely go dead from the carbonation, it will kill the yeast.
Next, add one packet of yeast per gallon of soda. Once it’s activated with 100 degrees hot water, pour it in the Mountain Dew mixture. Let the Mountain Dew mixture sit for a full month before checking the gravity. Checking the gravity tells how you how alcoholic something is. Use the original sample of the Mountain Dew and let it un-fizz, then compare it to a sample of the brewed Mountain Dew.
Overall, continue to watch Human Echoes tutorial on YouTube for the whole process on how to make Mountain Dew wine. There are lots of steps to it, and it seems technical in the beginning, but follow along closely. Apparently, this is a great way for gamers to get drunk, and he explains at the end of the video. This is a childhood drink for some people, and it tastes less sweet. The alcohol content is about a normal beer or a little more.
