Melon soda

Postby audaciouspiglet on Sun Jul 21, 2019 10:02 am

Has anyone tried fermenting melons (what I would call “cantaloupe”) - a peachy coloured melon)?
I saw watermelon soda on someone’s blog but somehow I think the texture and qualities of those melons are quite different.
Ive been successfully making lemon and frozen raspberry sodas, and i had a melon so thought I’d try it. I am still quite new at this and don’t know if its gone bad or is just weird, due to some kind of thick substance that’s part of the normal makeup of this melon. One obvious thought is that the thick stuff at the top is a form of “mold” or unwanted growth,but maybe it’s just a kind of pectin-like thing.

This won't be helpful to you, but I once made watermelon soda and allowed it to overcarbonate, so when I opened it, it went all over my kitchen -- walls, ceiling, clock, cabinets, floor, my son eating breakfast, myself. It was a disaster that we were still finding occasional bits of three months later.

Never tried cantaloupe.
