After my great success with the root beer, I thought that I would try a vanilla soda (also known as cream soda but very different from the historic cream soda). I sterilzed the bottling equipment and bottles and then used the following to make one case:
- 2 gallons water
- 1.5 oz. pure vanilla extract (the type used for baking)
- 3 cups sugar
- 1/4 tsp yeast
I dissolved the yeast in some warm water and let it sit for five minutes. I added the sugar to slightly warm water so that it would dissolve well. Then I added the yeast mixture and the vanilla and then stirred and bottled. I hope that it will come out well. I will update when it is ready.
