So I got my DIY CO2 going

Had a thought

If I put fruit juice in instead of sugar water, do you think I could make a nice tasting tipple?
:D

Nope

Im guessing brewers yeast may also last longer, you can also get yeasts that can take higher alcohol concentrations, meaning if there is enough sugar it should last longer....

I quite liked the taste of my sugary, fizzy alcoholic concoctions after a couple of weeks on the windowsill!
Only the slightly bewildered looks from people stopped me consuming much! :lol:
I did wonder what sort of % alc. it got upto though :rolleyes:

Certain champagne yeasts are the best to use as they have the highest tolerance to alcohol of them all, something like 15-16% or more and so people use it to restart stuck ferments. A general wine makers yeast would be good though and would hit 14% which would be a good lump above bakers yeast I imagine as you just want a fast acting one for that.

I'm not sure I'd ever drink or even try the dregs from anything I'd put on a fish tank though. Yuck. :D
