just wondering if anyone has tried fermenting some cordial with yeast and had some good results

i was thinking of of using Kool-aid because you have to mix sugar with it anyway

tell us what you think?

thank you

At soem point in the distant past I made riboozer, which was about 3 litres of ribena syrup and 1kg of dextrose with champagne yeast, made up to 20 litres.

In direct retaliation, a friend made a similar thing with red cordial (tip: get one with artificial flavours and colours, these wont ferment out).

I haven't been tempted to do another one, not even to torture the guy over here at AHB brewdays.

Do a search on google for prison wine...

For the truly authentic taste brew it in a plastic bag stashed in the toilet using bakers yeast (or a slice of mouldy bread stuffed into a sock if you can't smuggle any yeast out of the prison kitchen).

Its generally pretty vile. Even brewed using proper yeast.

Cheers
Dave

Not having had kool aid for a very long time, I would just check the label for preservatives which could really cramp the yeast's style.

You are a brave man indeed for trying. The closest I have done to this is

the ribena thing sounds good
gotta be careful that your cordial isn't full of preservatives that'll give the yeast a hard time
cordials are chocka full of cane sugar so theyd probably ferment out like old Uncle Bobs SpewBrew (can+1kg cane sugar)
