I tried my first crack at soda. Birch beer extract. used a tbsp of extract, about 2 1/2 cups of sugar dissolved, mixed into a 1gal glass bottle and topped it off with warm water. I started a packet of bakers yeast into a pint sized mixture of sugar water, and let it start overnight (shook it a few times to aerate.
I added about half of the yeast to the bottle then split it into 2 2 liter plastic bottles and let it set out about 5 days.
It carbonated well so I stuck it in the fridge. Now for my question.
it tastes a bit weak, so I'll up the extract/sugar a bit, but it has a noticeable yeast taste/smell. Did I use too much? Do I have to wait for the yeast to fall out?
WOODY: Hey, Mr. Peterson, there's a cold one waiting for you.
NORM: I know. If she calls, I'm not here.
