Just one plastic vial (I think its 4 oz). One is recommended for up to 5 gal of cream soda.

No, its extract used for people to make cream soda. I think they call it "vanilla cream soda" extract.

" Gnome Soda Extracts are by far the highest quality, best tasting extracts we have found. The root beer is creamy and rich, and the vanilla cream is just like the cream soda you used to get at the old soda fountain! Each pouch contains enough extract to make 5 gallons of soda. You also need champagne yeast, PET bottles, and sugar to make these extracts. "

I found this as the description, but if this is for making soda why did the company say you need Champagne yeast?
maybe someone at website was also thinking of making a mead and wanted bubbles.

You use the yeast to carbonate soda by letting it ferment a very small amount of sugar then cold crashing it

Ahh I thought it was done with CO2 cartridges. But maybe that is just the sodastream I've been seeing.
