Peach Fizz

Mike got a big bag of free Michigan peaches from the co-op a few days ago.  Actually a co-worker was going to take them home, but suggested that maybe Mike could take them and make soda out of them (and bring bottles back to the co-op, of course!).  So he cooked up a batch of peach soda- no spices or frills, just straight up peaches, sugar, and yeast.  

We sort of forgot about it after setting it aside in a box to ferment.  Usually 36 hours is plenty for a soda and I think this one got 2-3 days.  The carbonation is out of control!

As you can see, the glass is completely filled with foam.  What you can't see is my deck covered in peach soda.  

Despite its over-carbonated-ness, the flavor is amazing.  It's just as fruity and fizzy as that cheap Boone's Strawberry Hill you drank in 10th grade, but hopefully with less alcohol.  I love the simple peachiness of it and the color is beautiful!
