DetailsThe Soda Making Equipment Kit includes everything you need to make and bottle your own homemade sodas. Midwest suggests using empty two liter soda bottles, or our 500ml P.E.T. bottles, as glass bottles run the risk of exploding under pressure.
Soda Making Equipment Kit Includes:
- A 6.5 gallon bottling bucket
- A 24" stirring spoon
- 4 feet of tubing
- A bottle filler
- And complete instructions
You would also need a soda extract (not Sprecher's, a keg system is needed for those), honey and/or granulated sugar, champagne yeast, sanitizer, and empty two liter soda bottles, or our 500ml P.E.T. bottles, and caps.
- A 6.5 gallon bottling bucket

5.0 / 5.024 ReviewsWhen it comes to filling my jars I always ended up with a huge mess, wishing I had four hands. Lets face it, holding the bottle and a funnel while trying to pour soda into the funnel will always equal a mess. Well not anymore. This little gem of a bucket Has now made filling my jars so easy and without the mess and loss of soda that never seemed to get into the jars. Yup, this ones a keeper.May 1, 2017Purchased

Browse 6 questions Browse 6 questions and 12 answersDoes the soda kit include a lid with a drilled spot for a airlock?BEST ANSWER: Not this kit, sorry. But you can do what I did and go to Lowes and buy one of their buckets that have a lid. It looks just like this soda making kit without the drain valve. Infact the lid for the Lowes bucket will fit the Midwest bucket as well, if you want to go that way. You can order the airlock on amazon too. I use the midwest bucket when I am filtering out my soda and decant it into jars from there.Can I use this to make my Kumbucha tea ??BEST ANSWER: I use mine for soda only. Most kombucha brewers I speak to prefer glass containers. I know that brewing kombucha will eventually leave a stain on the plastic and I don't know if that will cause foreign bacteria to form. When using plastic it should also be BPA free. Try the 6.5 gallon big mouth bubbler, I love mine, and don't forget the harness. Good Luck.What do you do for co2?BEST ANSWER: You add yeast to the bottling and this coverts sugars to CO2.
