If you have the equipment needed to brew beer, you have everything you need to make homemade soft drinks. Homemade soda is very easy to make and is a great project to do with the kids. These extracts include enough to make 4 gallons. Champagne yeast, PET bottles, and sugar is also needed to make soda from these extracts. Complete instructions are included in the extract box.

this was my first try. the only thing I would recommend, adjust the sugar you add to taste. making another gallon soon !
an old fashion root beer flavor.
Very easy and good flavor. My kids loved it. My only complaint is the smell is very strong.
I made the soda with my kids. We had fun and I got to teach them a little about science and brewing . I'm not a soda drinker but the soda was passable.
I was at the homebrew store to pick up another kit to brew and though, ya know, I'll throw together some root beer for the kids. They'll get a kick out of that and it should be really easy. I picked up this extract and followed the directions to the T and ya know what, it was easy. Very easy. Unfortunately none of us cared for the flavor very much. I was hoping for a nice frosty MUG type root beer. This was more like Barq's rootbeer. There was some bite there. If you don't mind that, then this should be a great extract to use. Or (and I haven't tried this yet) I would think this would be delicious for some root beer floats. _x000D__x000D_One thing to note also, we opened some up after maybe 1-2 weeks and there were some strange off flavors. Those went away the longer we let them sit in the fridge.
Having used this soda before when at the very beginning of my brewing career, I can say that it is an idiot-proof mix that yields excellent results. It also makes an excellent base for adding better ingredients (I have added vanilla, rum and other flavorings and recommend it.)
