So now that I managed to make a Ginger Beer and a Lemon Lime Soda, with limited self-injury. I think it’s time to move on to bigger and I hope yummier stuff.  Not that my first two sodas weren’t great, but I really want a grape soda and a cherry-vanilla soda and a couple others.  I think I might try the Ginger Ale too, though I think I may wait.  I really, really want to make the grape!  I miss my grape nehi!

The Lemon-Lime Soda had a scant 2 cups sugar, 2 lemons, 5 limes and enough water to get 1 gallon in the end.  Made a really great drink.  Had to do some extra aeration though because of the acidity of the citrus fruit though.

I’m also going to look into getting some smaller bottles for carbonation testing though.  It’s not very evident when the carbonation is right in the 500ml bottles.
