    Sharon, I would really, really like to make this recipe, but I am wondering about a couple things. You can bottle it into the smaller bottles the same day as you make it? So you don’t have to wait for the fizz to die way down?

    Does bottling it the same day stop it from getting too alcoholic? I was reading about making ginger beer and it seemed that that sat forever. Since it was ginger beer and not soda I’m guessing the sitting and fermenting made more alcohol in it.

    And I don’t own any glass bottles like yours. Could I get away with plastic pop bottles? That would also ease my mind about over fizzing and exploding soda everywhere.

    Hi, You can bottle it in whatever you choose to use.

    The yeast is what will cause the fermentation and that takes about 72 hours. I just adds carbonation and no alcohol to speak of- you’d get more alcohol from one of those near beers (non alcoholic)

    I used regular granulated bread yeast and it tasted okay, but I got some brewer’s champagne yeast and that really gave it a much better taste.

    From here on out I’ll be using champagne yeast (I had to order it online as I don’t have any kind of brewery stores around me) to make all of my soda. I’ll be making sassafras soda the end of the week.
