Default Carbonating with dry ice

I would like to carbonate my rootbeer using dry ice in bottles. Obviously I will be using plastic bottles. Has anyone tried this before? I would like to have a general idea as to how much dry ice to add to a bottle to carbonate without the whole exploding bottle thing.

Yes folks have done it and made very dangerous bombs. It is a terrible idea. Some where there is a thread on here that was done for education purposes showing what a bad idea it is.

Very bad idea. Does make for some funny videos though.

Zwetschgen,

It is definitely not a bad idea. I've done it tons of time. I posted the recipe on my website if you want to check it out. It will tell you just how much dry ice you need and how to make it. Enjoy!

I think the leaving it covered but un-sealed is the difference between "Funny video / Bad idea" and "ooo yummy, we should do this every 4th of July"

Thanks for the idea ZeroTucker

That how we do it! Except we add a little vanilla extract too. MMMM good.

If you want a very good twist, make a rum and homemade root beer instead of rum and coke.

The wife was making homemade root beer floats at the Saturday rodeo once and there was about 3 gallons left from 10 to take home. The only bucket we had was vanilla ice cream buckets so in it went. There was enough ice cream left in it to taste like a very good root beer float, and when we added the Captain Morgan, WOW.

Talk about GOOOOOD. A couple friends and me didnt have any problems finishing that off with about a gallon of rum by Sunday night!

Seeing as rum is my #2 drink of choice after beer, I'll have to try this.

OK, back on topic...

So it says "do not create an air-tight seal". How do you bottle without creating at least a somewhat air tight seal? I have pet bottles and have only used yeast to carbonate up to this point, but this sounds interesting.

OK, I get it, it's referring to the 1 hour it sits in the dry ice, but can you bottle at the end of that?
