On Saturday, the SWMBO and I made some Cherry soda, Cream soda and Strawberry Cream soda from Rainbow Flavors Extract and Munton's yeast. We used regular unboiled tap water, as we have good water here with very little chlorine. The sugar was used was regular Domino table sugar.
The Cherry and Cream were straight forward as the recipe instructed. The Strawberry Cream was the cream soda extract mixed with 1 ounce of artificial strawberry flavor.
They sat at about 70 degrees for 3 days in the same dark spot my beer sits. I just cracked open my first bottle of soda and I am pleased with the results. Here is the first glass of Cream soda.
My first impression of the Cream soda is that it is much more sweet than a regular soda. The difference in taste between real sugar and corn syrup in soda is amazing. The cream flavor is strong but not overwhelming. You also get a slight taste of yeast but thats not a big deal to me. I would say that I would like a little more crispness so I am going to let a bottle or two sit for a bit longer for some added carbonation. I know that real crispness isn't going to happen unless I start force carbonating the extract but being this is the first batch I wanna see what another day does to the flavor and carbonation level.
