I plan to ferment all 7lbs then back sweeten to taste. Mostly trying to figure if it is worth the cost to buy corn sugar or if table sugar will work ok without tasting horrible.

Well it's not really a soda pop since it'll have a significant amount of alcohol in it. Mostly it's an experiment to try to make a ginger beverage, be it considered a beer, cider, or soda.

I have never used that one. I think I'll try it next time. The one on the left has multiple settings. Pretty sure it's a coffee grinder since it recommends using "drip."
