If you can boil water, you can make soda. Seriously, it is that easy. Midwest offers many different soda extracts so you are able to find a flavor that you like. Once you have the equipment needed (and many homebrewers/winemakers have all of this stuff already; See our PDF titled “What equipment do I need to make soda?”), just pick out an extract, then all you need is water, table sugar, and champagne yeast.
Making soda is also a great science project for kids. Students can learn the basics of how yeast eats sugar to create CO2. Yes, the other side effect is alcohol, but in soda you place it in the fridge before any is formed. We’ve had many science teachers buy soda equipment, and make soda with their students.
Our PDF on, “What is the process for making soda?” will give you a general idea on how to make it. Soda is quick, painless, and fun. You can make several different types for your next party. You can make as little as a couple glasses worth at a time, all the way up to 4 or 5 gallons at a time. Come on, you know you want to give it a try.
