Making Probiotic Sodas at home is easier than you think and fun to do. Creating effervescence naturally feels satisfying and fun, especially when you can control the intensity of the flavor and the amount of sugar in your home-made drinks. We will make 3 kinds of sodas: root beer, ginger ale, hibiscus and lemon verbena lacto-fermented sodas. We will discuss various bacteria and their role in creating texture, troubleshoot pitfalls, and how season may effect your sodas at home.
