SANITIZE ALL EQUIPMENT THAT COMES IN CONTACT WITH YOUR SODA.
Since soda is mostly water, the better the water the better your soda. For best results refrigerate your water overnight before starting this recipe.
- 2.1. Add 1/2 cup of warm or room temperature water to the sanitized cereal bowl, then add 1/2 tsp. of sugar and 1/4 tsp. of yeast. Set this bowl aside. This is your yeast mixture.
- 2.2. Bring 3 cups of water to a boil in a clean 3 quart pot. For best results, use bottled spring water or charcoal-filtered tap water.
- 2.3. At first sign of bubbling, slowly stir in 2 1/4 cups of table sugar and 1 packet of flavor enhancer. Mix until sugar has fully dissolved. Make sure sugar does not clump or stick to the bottom of the pot.
- 2.4. Let boil for 5 minutes, then remove from heat and turn off the stove. Slowly stir in 1/2 bottle (1 ounce) of soda flavoring. Mix well and set aside. This is your soda mixture.
- 2.5. Add cold (refrigerated) water to the “start” level (this is located on the side of your fermenter). Pour your mixture from the pot into the fermenter, then bring the volume of your fermenter to the “fill” level by adding more cold water. Stir vigorously.
- 2.6. Once the temperature inside the fermenter is between 62°- 84° F add your “yeast mixture” and mix well. Place on your lid (with vent plug).
- 2.7. Place the fermenter out of direct sunlight and maintain a temperature between 62°- 84° F for approximately 6-8 hours or overnight (if needed).
After 6-8 hours the mixture in your fermenter should be ready to bottle!
Using the remaining One Step, sanitize (4) 1 liter PET bottles and caps by following the steps outlined in the instructions that came with your brewing system.
- 3.1. Add 2 1/2 tsp. of table sugar to each sanitized 1 liter bottle. Different bottle sizes require different amounts.
- 3.2. Using the tap, fill each of bottle about 1 inch above the base of the neck. Make sure all bottles contain approximately the same amount.
- 3.3. Remove excess oxygen by gently squeezing each bottle until the liquid works its way up the neck, then cap each bottle with a sanitized cap. Make sure the caps are nice and tight, then invert each bottle several times to dissolve the sugar. Do not shake bottles.
- 3.4. Place the bottles upright and out of direct sunlight. Maintain a temperature between 64°- 82° F for approximately 5-7 days until bottles become firm to the touch.
CHECK EACH BOTTLE DAILY. WHEN THEY BECOME FIRM LIKE A NEW BOTTLE OF SODA, PLACE THEM IN THE FRIDGE OVERNIGHT.
