making pop.





crazy-_-e
this is a good hobbie, and I would love to start this hobbie again.
every thing you need:

1)bottles; if you want to use glass bottles, I cant help
you, but however you can also use the 2 LT plastic bottles
and any other size. Just remember to save the bottles and
the caps.

2) yeast; you can find yeast on ebay, or google search
making home made pop. Yeast type; not sure of the
exact type of yeast you need, all I know is that you
can use the same yeast used for making wine.

3) flavor; you can look on ebay for root beer flavor
and others, but you may also use lemon extract from
the store as while as lime. I have recently tryed this
and it works just fine, as log as you dont kill the yeast
you can use anyhing.

Hm... Yeast?
I thought it was usually carbonated by bubbling carbon dioxide through it...

I think one can make nice ginger ale with yeast, but it can end up being a real messy affair. If done well however there is no commercial ginger ale that can beat the natural taste.

yeah not getting the yeast..that causes fermentation..i make wines and cider not pop..we use hyeast in them and its all for fermentation

The yeast naturally carbonates the pop. Yeast produces carbon dioxide during fermentation. Since the container is closed, the liquid absorbs the carbon dioxide and becomes carbonated.

Why is pop not alcoholic? You only ferment pop for a few days to a week before refrigerating. Alcoholic beverages are fermented for up to two weeks.

Would commercial syrup work with this yeast method?
You can get 5 gallons of soda syrup at Sams' for ~$36, bet that would make a ton of pop.

Oh yea, I have been making beer/soda/wine for a couple years now it is amazingly fun, and super cheap!!

Most of the time I make them from scratch, but occasionally I'll buy a kit. Depending on what it is and what ingredients I need the price ratio comes out to around this per bottle...

Beer-$.40
Soda-$.20
Wine-$1.50

It's a great way to save money, but in all honesty its really fun to mix everything together add the yeast watch them reproduce and multiply and do their thing. Plus it usually is tastier and healthier than the bulk produced chemical filled crap you buy!

It's like having little tiny gnomes that make stuff for you!

If anyone has any questions I am always willing to help!

You are correct about how the yeast carbonates the pop. However, the lack of alcohol production is not attributed to the length of time in which you 'bottle condition'. Rather, it's the stage in yeasts' lifecycle that determines what byproducts it produces.
Here's an extremely brief synopsis....
When yeast is in the early stages of its cycle, it produces alcohol, CO2, and reproduces by feeding off of sugers, oxygen, and other nutrients. As these things are consumed they become scarcer. This tells the yeast to enter into a new stage in which it stops reproducing and making alcohol. At this point the yeast will continue to produce C02 because they are still eating whatever sugars they can. When making soda: Because the yeast is feeding off of sugars in a closed container and no oxygen has been introduced, the yeast enters this stage right away. Thus only producing CO2 and giving you a booze free soda.
