    Soda Preservation

    I have never made a soda but since the wife bought me a kegging system for fathers day , I want to give it a shot. Basically I will do a strong ginger beer Jamaican style with some ginseng. Aside from the obvious and normal sanitation how do you keep the sugar in the soda from being infected...

    I am just sipping a little 25cl bottle of this and think I might want to brew up a batch. Anyone here have a recipe? Also I can ranch the yeast off one of these easily ( I think !!! ). Is the yeast in the bottle the same as the yeast in the primary fermentation?
