This base makes 4 gallons of soda and is extremely easy to make, just mix the solution with 4 gallons of water and sugar, cool in the fridge, then force carbonate with CO2 in a keg or naturally carbonate in bottles.
Includes instructions for lower calorie version along with carbonation steps.
To create 4 – gallons of soda, combine (1) 2 fluid ounce bottle of Old Fashioned Homebrew Root Beer Soda Pop Base with 4 pounds of sugar and 4 – gallons of water while using the traditional mix and carbonation method.
In every box of soda extract, precise directions are provided on the methods for carbonating the sodas with dry champagne yeast.
IMPORTANT: If carbonating with yeast, only use plastic PET bottles.
All manufacturers warn against using glass bottles due to a real risk of over carbonated beverages actually exploding the glass bottle and causing serious personal injuries.
Only use plastic PET bottles, like 2 Liter soda bottles.
When making soda with yeast, carbonation levels are difficult to control.
Following the instructions provided will allow the yeast to produce carbon dioxide for three days at room temperature.
Once the soda is refrigerated, the yeast becomes dormant and CO2 production nearly stops.
If the soda is not refrigerated following the 3 – day carbonation period, the pressure will naturally continue to build inside the bottles and, upon opening, a serious soda gusher may very well occur.
