I also plan to make a Malt Based Birch Beer next Fall, and from Scratch
And a Diet Cream Soda from Soda Extract next Summer
(Using Xylitol and Dextrose, Xylitol is about 90% the Sweetness of Sucrose and Dextrose is about 60% as sweet. 6 cups of Xylitol to 2 cups of Dextrose)
Try it out if you guys want and let me know how it goes!
And one can buy it thru Amazon, the Xylitol
Corn Sugar can be found on Midwest
Warning= ALL Sugar Alcohols have a very slight to major Laxative Effect.
Xylitol causes it somewhat. Also my dad brought home some mini Cheesecake things that were lactose-free milk and sweetened with Maltitol i/o the Lactose. Lactose gives me stomach aches but the Maltotol gives ya the cr&%s!
If ya wanna brew it you can but it may or may not cause Bloating, Constipation, Gas Problems, or Frequent Trips to The Johnny
It will work because it will take oh say... about 3 days for the Dextrose to be fermented, and the Soda itself, will be almost as Sweet as Sucrose Sweetened Soda
Xylitol is generally Mild but I wouldn't drink more than half a glass every couple days
That Birch Beer Recipe will have to be $20 as well, and the Cream Soda, I ask for a Donation of $1.35 for my Idea.
Baker's Yeast, for Soda Making, can be used, and it usually has Good Results.
Ferments it no problem!
I will not say what my dad's name is, and if I do I might get him in BIG TROUBLE with his Supervisors.
My Email is mrmatt2164atgmaildotcom if any one is interested in doing business with me!
The IRA will be made next week! I will use it for Thanksgiving.
