Making 2L batches of soda, I'm not sure there are any books out there that could teach me something for less than it would cost to experiment with it myself

Are you looking for recipes, techniques, science, or what? There's that one book on soda making, I forget the name at the moment... it's pretty much the only one I've heard anything about, and even then I don't know what emphasis it has.

I think I found the book on soda making you're talking about on Amazon, Homemade Root Beer, Soda & Pop by Stephen Cresswell. I might pick it up.

You're probably right about experimenting on my own. If I had room to crash five gallons of soda I'd make more, but a couple of two liter bottles at a time is about all I can fit in the fridge. My Hoptech root beer turned out really good and got a thumbs up from the kid!

If you haven't bought this yet, I think one of my brewing buddies owns it and I can ask him whether it was worth it.

Thanks for the offer. I tacked it on to my last Amazon order and its on the way. They have it for only $10 there. So, worst case scenario, it gives me a few ideas of flavors that will work well in sodas.

Getting my first cornie kegs in 2 days, looking forward to making sodas without having to use yeast. I know it is only a small amount but I can taste it, and swmbo really tastes it...gonna try carbing up some crystal light juices as we both love the fruit punch they make.

On Sunday I will brew...
1 kg. Crystal Malt 120L
1.5 kg. Maris Otter Pale
14 g. Northern Brewer (Whole, 8.00 %AA) boiled 30 min.
14 g. Hallertau Hersbruck (Pellets, 4.50 %AA) boiled 60 min.
.500 kilograms Blackcurrants
.250 kilograms Ginger
Munton-Fison Active Brewing Yeast
6 Star Anise 30 min
Handful Blackcurrant Mint 30 min.

I will shred the ginger, but this time i will remove the outer and just use the flesh.
I will boil the blackcurrants in the liquor in a hop bag...

I think the pith and the seeds are tannic?

Isn't this a beer recipe and not a soda recipe?
