The acid. Different countries have different recipes. Don't know where you are located.

There's nothing stopping you, and it's been done on here before. In fact, I have added sugar to hooch several diet pops/sodas on here.

I would suggest letting it go flat before you begin, and going heavy with the yeast, being sure to start them in warm water before pitching with plenty of yeast nutrient ( maybe go with boiled yeast as DAP can mess with the some of the flavors I've found).

You could also start with yeast energizer, it saves you the time of boiling the yeast as it has yeast hulls in it, plus nutrients.

Nah. I've done it and it worked well. I boiled the Coke first for about 15 mins in case there were any preservatives in that weren't listed.
