Can I use monkfruit, Splenda, or Stevia in place of sugar?Updated a year ago

Calorie-free sweeteners can't replace sugar, because the yeast needs a caloric sugar to produce alcohol. Sugar is your yeast's food, and without it, the yeast won't be able to convert anything into alcohol for you.

Luckily, you still CAN make sugar-free or keto wine, even by adding sugar! Check out how to do it here.

You'll start by adding just enough regular sugar so that the yeast eats virtually all of it and turns it into alcohol. Then, you can sweeten after it's done with an artificial sweetener.
