    it can be used to inhance a beer product, I have done that. To use pure syrup to make alcohol? I'm not sure.
    I made a porter a few times and after the first 1o days or so I dumped 1/2 gal of C into it, let it ferment another 10 to 14 days. It was good

    You make "mead" out of honey I wonder if you can make it out of syrup?


    think this is my Killians Red with some LT Amber in it

    I have made maple mead and maple sap wine--both are fun to make and enjoyable.There are plenty of recipes online.
    When the wind's in the west.the sap runs best..
    When the winds in the north the sap runs forth..
    When the winds in the south the sap runs drouth
    And when the winds in the east the sap runs least--Old New England Farm Song

    I use maple syrup to start our apple cider wine. There is a winery at Seneca Falls NY that makes a maple liquor.

    I've made maple wine a couple of times. Dilute B syrup to 21 brix, adjust acid and add yeast. I'm going to start using syrup to sweeten some of my wines, like apple.

    Pretty much anything with a high enough sugar content can be fermented to make alcohol.
