Title: My V8 Splash Mango Peach fermented
Post by: 1vertical on June 05, 2010, 03:54:24 AM
IN THE FRIDGE, It carbed up all by itself smells a bit sulfury, but tastes really NICE....

I wonder if this is a yeast...and if it is, it may be a lager because it has been in the
fridge a long time.  I cracked the lid on it and sssssssssst.... bubbly neat flavored stuff.

How to proceed??, I suppose I could innoculate a bit of sanitized wert...from DME and see
what gives....totally spontaneous stuff here.  ;D


What Would You Do??

DME sounds fine to me, but just regular sugar would do the trick too.  It would be cheaper, and any yeast that's in there has probably already gotten lazy from munching on the fructose of the fruit juices.

I've always had a strange desire to intentionally ferment V8   :-\

Do you drink straight from the container when no one else is looking?  :o
If you like it, drink it. As long as you don't see any mold growing on top.
