Carbonating root beer with dry ice is a common picnic party activity. I've seen it done a lot. It's not nearly as efficient as other methods, but it's fun and easy.

True enough. Let me amend my statement:

Put the soda in the refrigerator after it carbonates to prevent the yeast from turning all your sugar into alcohol. Then drink all of it.

It's been discussed elsewhere on this forum, though I can't find it off hand. Basically, the yeast doesn't need all that much sugar to create the CO2 needed for carbonation. If you'll notice, recipes...

No, UV will largely penetrate the clear plastic bottles. It's simply more effective to introduce the UV directly to the water in Steripen's case.

Yeast won't eat much of the sugar at all. Bear in mind that AB's recipe is pretty light on sugar and a little ginger goes a long way. Try it again with much more syrup or less water.

I'm guessing it's either used for sugar inversion (added during heating with the sugar) or as an acidic method of adding some head to the root beer.

I have seen a study on this, but it's been a while I can no longer find it.

Plain water should be fine with brass fittings. Modern brass plumbing fixtures contain a minimum amount of lead that's...

Virgil's make a Dr. Better soda that contains "a touch of prune juice" (ingredient is listed just after phosphoric acid, so I'm not expecting much of it). Dr. Better is the only soda I've found that...

Never even heard of potassium metabisulphite before today. I'll consider picking some up if the low-temp pasteurization doesn't work. I don't want to batch pasteurize...

Next time you refill, you might try weighing the (completely empty) paintball CO2 cylinder both before and after filling. I believe they're only rater for 12 oz. or 20 oz., depending on the cylinder.

I'll try the low-temp pasteurization on a few bottles next time I make some soda. Thanks for all the feedback, everyone.
