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 ReviewsGreat KitThis is a very nice kit for anyone looking to get into soda making. It comes with almost everything you need to get started. This kit can also be used for making wine or beer if you try to do that after soda.February 15, 2013Good starter kit for sodaThis kit has all I needed to start making soda. I could have used one of my beer fermentors, but being plastic, they have beer smells. The spoon is a good addition because it's plastic and wont scratch the bucket the way a metal one will._x000D_Here is a tip for using the bottle filler - I cut a 1 inch section of tubing off, and attached the filler directly to the spiggot. I don't even need to use the rest of the 3'11" of tubing.March 12, 2013I bought this for my sonHe is 10 and helps me brew, so I got him this so he has his own "brew" to make. I helped him out and he really enjoyed it. I explained the science behind everything and he was interested. The root beer came out well too, and he wants to make more sodas._x000D_This is a fun and inexpensive gift for pre-teens or early teens.January 10, 2013A present for my NephewMy nephew is curious about my brewing so i bought him this kit. We made the Sprecher Root Beer kit together and he had a lot of fun being the brewer. I explained step by step why we were doing things and what was going on. He wanted to know what the yeasts favorite type of soda was. This si a good gift for children, nothing to go wrong except a little mess - which YOU don't have to worry about :-)January 18, 2013A gift to my kidsI got this for my kids so they can brew soda. I help them if they need it, but after going through it a couple of times, they know what to do. Its got all they need, and we already have bottles and caps, so it's a pretty good deal. We've been trying all the kits, Gnome, Sprecher, and the Old Fashioned Homebrew.February 4, 2013Surprisingly easyI didn't realize soda making was this simple. I got this kit and made a great rootbeer with it. The kit had all I needed except bottles and caps.February 24, 2013Good for beer too!I actually bought this kit as part of my beer-brewing kit because I was able to save a few bucks.

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. Best to use flexible PET bottles so that once a bottle swells and feels tense from gs production, you put all bottles in the fridge to halt the yeast.Would the soda still carbonate if a sweetener like Stevia was used instead of sugar or honey?BEST ANSWER: Hello!
It will not carbonate if you use Stevia is used if you use yeast for carbonation. However, you can still force carbonate the soda using a keg and CO2 tank.Can’t you use this as a bottling bucket for beer also since it contains tubing and a bottle filler?BEST ANSWER: Yes you could!what keeps the sugar's and yeast from fermenting and making this alcohol?BEST ANSWER: Under "Details & Instruction" there is a link with all the information.
