Can You ferment orange juice without sugar in it?

You can ferment just about anything with sugar in it; the product may not be worth the effort for example my garlic wine didn’t seem popular. Without the yeast (or at least the enzymes the yeast makes) no fermentation will happen. Cartons of juice are sterilised before they are sealed.

Image via Flickr by Dinner Series. There are many levels to creating an alcoholic fruit drink, namely the total number of mixers you include.
