Kind of a moot point cuz I did it, had no raisins or desire to make a 4th trip to town. Anyone else done it?

It will work. It isn't a JAO at that point (ancients didn't have any DAP), but an orange and spice melometh will ferment just fine using bread yeast.

I would like to see a side by side comparison and see if/how it changes the taste and alcohol content :)

Yeah I'm ok with it not being a true jao. I'm just hoping it doesn't push the yeast to eat too much honey and throw the flavors off.

Interesting experiment if nothing else. I look forward to the results of this one.

Thanks for giving this a try, even if it was an "emergency", we all have those and make do with what we have on hand.
