*Making Homemade Soda*
My son was making soda the other night and I decided that I would explainthe process for folks who don’t do it. It is really very easy and much lessexpensive than store bought soda. Once you practice a little and get theproportions of sugar, flavoring syrup, yeast, and time to ferment in the bottleset to what your family likes the soda is really
