  • I have been interested in wine and beer making for a long time and just never got started. Recently, I finally got the motivation to try soda brewing because an elderly friend has been talking a great deal about making rootbeer when he was a kid and he wants to try some of that rootbeer again. I just made my first batch of rootbeer to surprise him. I think it has inspired me to continue my other brewing efforts, as well.

    I have not yet tried forced carbing yet. However, I have been wondering whether I can carb in a
    large container for storage and then put the soda into smaller bottles later without losing the

    I'm originally from IN. Now I'm in St. Louis. Miss some of the folks back there. Had a lot of
    fun in the caves and the woods.

    I have been reading beer brewers posts and it sounds like they do warm yeast up to get it
    active again. I am a novice when it comes to rootbeer, too, but since that principle does work
    with yeast in b...

    I believe it's the flavor that causes the problem, at least that is what I have been told. Once
    rootbeer gets into a keg, or anything else, it's darn near impossible to get every last bit of
    that flav...

    I am really curious about the forced carbonation with the pressure caps. So, you make your own

  • Posted in thread: 2 batches... lack carbonation on 06-18-2010 at 09:39 PM
    I am having problems with carbonation, as well. However, my directions do advise to let the
    rootbeer set longer than yours do. They say to let it set at warm temps for at least 3-4 days
    and then set a...
