Homemade sodas

Hello all!

I've been on a homemade soda kick (finally perfected my ginger beer!) and I've been trying to experiment with different flavors. Are there any good websites or even books out there for homemade sodas? I don't want to have to buy a sodastream or anything that injects carbonation, I'm just doing the 2 liter bottle with yeast method.

My foray into lemon lime soda was a disaster, I'm pretty sure flavoring with just lemon and lime juice (I know you should use extracts for that kind of thing, using the juice is basically a spritzer) was just too acidic for the yeast to make my bubbles.

Also, if anyone has any sage advice or recipes for home brewed soda, I'd love to hear it!
