Burchfield (Conway, Missouri USA) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Homemade Root Beer, Soda & Pop (Paperback) I enjoyed reading this book, not too complicated it just gets down to business without a lot of technical detail. It seemed to cover just about all of the details a first time brewer would need to brew up some very interesting drinks. One reviewer says it doesn’t tell you where to get supplies, true but the book does give some idea and addresses can change with time anyway. Most of the ingredients and implements needed you’ll find that you already have or can easily obtain at any time. My only complaint concerns the carbonation process, the author says when it is right refrigerate the drink, he is vague about what that point in the process is. I think I found it with careful reading. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 37 of 38 people found the following review helpful Great fun….BURP!, August 23, 2005 By Gully (Cedar Rapids, IA USA) – This review is from: Homemade Root Beer, Soda & Pop (Paperback) I got this book as a gift from a friend who knows how much I love pop. Let me tell you- this is a gift that keeps giving! I have tried all the recipes and it is EASY to make delicious fizzy drinks that taste better than most commercial versions and cost less in the long run. I especially love the birch beer, and so does everyone who has tasted the batch I made. I also like the molasses switchel and the fruit smoothie an awful lot. Now that I know the basics, I have modified several recipes to make them sweeter or fizzier or fruitier, according to taste. I have also been bold enough to make my own celery tonic and, believe it or not, a very invigorating tabasco pop. Get the book, bring over your buddies, and have a pop party! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (3) Reply 27 of 31 people found the following review helpful Great history of soda pop, January 7, 2003 By SodaFan (Chicago, IL) – This review is from: Homemade Root Beer, Soda & Pop (Paperback) Haven’t had a chance to try the recipes in the book yet, but there’s much more here. Little tidbits of interesting soda pop info I’ve never seen in other books, like: Whats the difference between root beer and sarsaparilla? Or: Does cream soda really have cream in it? Fascinating stuff for anyone interested in how everyday things like soda pop evolved to become the things we take for granted today. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
