    Pour juice into a container that you can cover with a cloth and rubber band.

    Pour ginger bug through cheese cloth into a 1/4 measuring cup.

    Add to juice. You'll notice the bubbles right away.

    Step 5

    Cover with cloth and let sit at room temperature.for three days.

    Step 6

    Stir twice a day. You'll notice it becomes more an more carbonated each day.

    Step 7

    Bottle in airtight container, or swing top bottles and let sit for twenty four hours. Refrigerate and enjoy.

    Step 8

    If the soda has any sort of bad smell, dump it down the drain, and try again. I once brewed a pear soda that smelled exactly like farts. The good news is, it spilled all over me when I popped the top.
