Brew Quince Soda Pop

This quince soda pop recipe can be used to make any other fruit-flavored soda pop. Make a fruit-flavored tea, add sugar and fruit juice and pour into a plastic soda pop with a small amount of fermented beverage left in the bottle.

1.) Make quince syrup
  *  Wash, peel, core and quarter 6-12 quince. Cover with water, bring to a boil and then simmer or slow-cook, covered, for 6-8 hours or overnight.
    * Strain this through a jelly bag or 4 layers of cheesecloth/muslin.
    * Measure the liquid and pour into saucepan. Put sugar into the measuring cup up to the same measure as there was liquid. Add to liquid.
    * Bring to a boil, stirring contantly, and then boil over medium high heat for a few minutes.
    * Let cool, bottle and refrigerate.
Tip: The simplest way to make quince syrup  is to make quince jelly first, and then make the syrup with the leftover pulp.

2.) Get some yeast starter. The best way to do that is to be making some ale, beer or wine with yeast and use a small amount of the sediment. If you don't have any yeast starter, you can use a pinch of dry yeast. It will just take a little longer to brew. You could make a starter, but the quince soda pop itself is more like a starter, itself. You could also use wild yeast, if you like.

Tip:  The sugar and quince syrup should be sufficient as a yeast nutrient to get the soda brewing. If not, see Brew Your Own Soda Pop for information on adding a yeast nutrient.

3.) Boil some water and let cool to luke warm. Mix it with the quince syrup at a ratio of about 4 parts water to 1 part syrup, or to taste. The exact ratio will depend on the relative taste and sweetness of the quince syrup.

Tip:  It may not be necessary to use boiled water. Try using plain tap water with one bottle to see how it comes out. 

4.) Put this mixture into clean plastic soda pop bottles, leaving about an inch space at the top. Put on screw-on top and tighten securely. Leave bottle(s) in a warm place and check daily by squeezing. When the bottle becomes firm and cannot be squeezed, which usually takes about 3-4 days, the soda pop is carbonated. Refrigerate and drink.

Tip:  If the bottles have become so hard that they feel like glass, it has probably become over-carbonated and you will need to open the bottle very slowly, let out a little gas and re-tighten before placing in the fridge.

This bottle can still be squeezed and is not ready to drink yet.

5.) After you have made your first bottle(s) of homebrewed soda you can make all the successive bottles with the small amount of sediment left at the bottom of the bottles. Just leave some sediment in the bottle and refill with water and quince syrup and cap.
