I did a quick search on the fermentability of Fructose as a brewing sugar.  Most of the papers that turned up were way over my head!  ???  One however did offer graphs and it looks as though fructose is not very fermentable

Good Luck

In Fall and Winter, we burn wood in the fireplace and brew beer.
In Spring & Summer, we're on the water or walking the beach!
 Then back at the dock we create a reason to brew!
