Caveman Cola: Brew Your Own Soda Pop

by Paul Strauss

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I think the whole DIY movement has gone a bit to far. Take, for instance, this kit which lets you make your own cola (presumably, just like the cavemen had to do.)


The Caveman Cola kit includes the key ingredients for making your own competitor to Coca-Cola and Pepsi (that’s more than likely going to taste worse than warm RC.) Inside the box is some cola extract, yeast, a brewing funnel, labels for your cola concoction, along with the instructions for making your science experiment work. You’ll need to provide some unnamed “natural ingredients” (I’m assuming some sugar, food coloring and the like), as well as your own bottles.

You can find the Caveman Cola kit over at Copernicus Toys for $13.99 (USD). Or you could just buy a 12 pack of Coke a few dollars less.

    LOL!! Last time we tried tone of those it turned out like stinky nasty beer. I do remember my mom making root beer when I was young. I don’t think that was very good either. I’m thinking I’ll stick with the pre-made sodas. Ha! Ha! :-)

    I think brewing your own soda could be loads of fun. The DIY movement, at least when it comes to food, creates a lot of potential for new and interesting stuff. I can’t possibly be the only one who thinks that making your own cola and customizing the brew would be awesome.

    Now here, I’ve had great luck making my own soda, both using yeast and CO2 tanks to carbonate it. It’s fun to learn how soda is made (it’s not complicated!), and also to experiment with new flavors. But you can make it with a clean 2 liter bottle, $1 pack of beer yeast, and $.50 cents worth of tea and sugar- no kit required ;-)
