Homebrewed soda is very easy to make. Just mix with water and sugar, add champagne yeast (Red Star Premier Blanc or Lalvin EC-1118, and bottle into PET plastic soda bottles. Allow to sit in cool dark place for at least a week, two is better. You can tell how carbonation is progressing by how firm the plastic bottles are. Force carbonate with CO2 or use club soda instead of water to enjoy immediately. Be sure to try corn sugar for the cleanest possible flavor. Low calorie recipes included in the instructions.
BEGINNERS WARNING: If you carbonate with yeast, everyone (including Brewer’s Best Classic and Rainbow Flavors) warn against using glass bottles. There is a real risk that some may explode and cause personal injury. Use plastic PET bottles, like 2 Liter soda bottles or our half liter PET bottles.
All of our flavors are super concentrated and are intended to be used at 1/2 ounce per gallon. A two ounce bottle will make 4 gallons. Remember to SHAKE WELL. These sodas also come out great using honey, brown sugar or molasses in place of sugar. Low calorie or zero calorie: Stevia or Splenda. Use equivalent dosage as regular sugar.
