                                             Make Your Own Soda

Very few people go more than a day or two without soda. It is the most popular beverage in most of the world. You can make your own soda at home in few simple steps.

Required Materials: –

  • 1/8 teaspoon yeast
  • 1/2 cup of lukewarm water
  • 1 gallon normal water
  • 2 ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon soda extract
  • 1 gallon container with lid (non-aluminium)
  • Funnel
  • Two 2 litre plastic bottles
  • Distilled water (optional)
  • Champagne yeast (optional)
  • Sugar substitute (optional)

Procedure: –

  • First of all, decide what kind of soda to make? Choose from cola, fruit beer, ginger ale and lemon lime among the other flavours.
  • Dissolve the yeast in the cup of lukewarm water. Use champagne yeast if you can instead of bread yeast because it leads to the best carbonation.
  • Pour the sugar, soda extract and the dissolved yeast in the container by using the funnel. Then add enough water to fill it.
  • Now close the lid and shake until the sugar dissolves completely.
  • If you want to make diet soda then use 5 tablespoon of white sugar and two cups of sugar substitute
  • Fill both the plastic bottles with the soda in container by using a funnel and screw on the caps tightly.
  • Store the bottles in a dark place at room temperature for 4 to 6 days. Give the bottles a little squeeze every day. If it feels too firm then open the cap to let out a little carbonation and reseal.
  • Refrigerate both the bottles and your soda is ready. Make sure you drink it within 4 weeks.

Facts you didn’t know: –

  • The average American drinks 56 gallons of soda every year.
  • These sugar sweetened beverages are the single largest source of added sugars in the American diet.
