I'm curious as to why you feel that stepponi isn't fermented.  After the
24 hour period Digby definitely says to bottle it and cellar it NOT drink
it.  In this cellaring time it will absolutely ferment to a very lightly
alcoholic slightly carbonated beverage not unlike modern Shandy. 
Especially after being exposed to all those airborne yeasts during its 24
hour steeping period.
