About This Class


Easily create naturally carbonated sodas at home using herbs, spices, fruit and juice. You'll learn 3 simple techniques for making delicious soda to enjoy within two to three days.

This class is designed for beginners and I will walk you through step-by-step instructions for making soda with ingredients you might already have in your kitchen or garden.

Benefits of making naturally carbonated soda:

  • Way cheaper than buying a soda machine.
  • Endless possibilities for flavor combinations.
  • Sweetened to taste (less sugar than commercial soda.)
  • Amazing and delicious!
  • Impress your friends and enemies.
  • Super easy to make

Tools required:

  • 1 half gallon wide mouth mason jar or a glass jug (See examples in class video on "Tools Overview.")
  • Small funnel
  • 3 or 4 "Flip-top" or EZ-Lock beer bottles (Must be able to withstand pressure.) (See class video on bottling.)
  • Optional but highly recommended: Airlock, Wide mouth mason jar lid with grommet and gasket. (See examples in class video on "Tools Overview.")
  • If not using an airlock you wil also need paper towels and a rubberband.
  • Champagne yeast

this class was very interesting but what i would like to know if it is possible that these sodas and remain out of the fridge for more like a period of three months like shelf life
I recently started making ginger ale and it has mostly been trial and error. I wish I had this class a few months ago - the videos are quick but so full of information. Magda is an excellent instructor and the production quality of the videos is great. I learned a lot from this class and look forward to more from Magda.
Really well explained class. Not too expensive to buy the equipment and a lot of flexibility on the recipe. So fun!
