Wow, you just opened up a whole new world to me. I would have never thought of making my own soda! Maybe I'll be brave and try! And thanks for the link! ; )

Hi! I just was perusing bloggers who were at Blogher and I landed here, and I feel the need to flog the root beer recipe that CHOW produced last fall -- hearty souls might be interested in comparing and contrasting against the Saveur version. (I work for CHOW, therefore the shameless flogging.) Here's the story:
There's also a ginger beer recipe!

Hey Gemma, it was great to meet you too! It's seldom I get to actually meet people I read on a regular basis.

A Chicago dinner is a must! I'm up for anything, but I can't recommend Kuma's Korner enough. Good food. Heavy metal. And friendly staff. We'll have to start talking to people.

Dearest Gemma---what an inspiring post! I have never tried to make beer or soda yet, but I promise I will! Have a great week!

Wow. I had no idea you could make soda. I'm on it.

Wow. I had no idea you could make soda. I'm on it.

Wow. I had no idea you could make soda. I'm on it.

hey gemma, i met you over at ellen's once for some frittata, in case you don't remember me. i tried making ginger ale once and couldn't get a good amount of sweetness. it was either too sweet or not enough. were you successful?

Hey Gemma-
Sorry we didn't find time to have lunch before I moved out of town, but I hope I get to see you sometime soon.

I'm glad to hear that you guys are trying to make soda. My older brother used to make root beers and different sodas when we helped him make beer as kids. I think it was his way of rewarding us for helping him. I remember the sodas being really good-- except that he once made a cream soda that was really weird. He hasn't made any soda since my younger sister and I are both of age... but maybe now that he has kids he'll try again. Best of luck to you both!

I too was inspired from that article but have yet to find the time to make it. Thanks for re-inspiring me. Cream soda sounds so good!
