On the soda stream site it shows Splenda (sucralose) on the regular. All the ones I found at BBB had Splenda on the label, that is the only reason we don't buy them.

Hadn't realized. I just checked the cabinet here at the house, and indeed, each there says Sucralose, Splenda brand at the end of ingredients list. They all also list 'sugar' as the 2nd ingredient...

And none of those are diet or sugar-free.

I've devoted one tap to this now, and drink it when I need some extra focus. I was buying cases from Costco, but that was definitely getting expensive.

I wanted to keep the keg low maintenance, so I only made one bottle of it, 3 gallons, and enough pressure so that I shouldn't have to repressurize it before it empties.

Red Bull only sells it in cans. The energy drinks you order at a bar on the "gun" are cheap knock-offs. The product being dispensed comes in 3 gal bibs (bag in boxes) which the gun mixes with carbonated water.

The only thing more dangerous to me than a keg of beer in the basement is a keg of redbull... sure, her projects would get done, but what of my bat**** paranoia?!

Roariing Lion was created by people who actually worked at Red Bull, and split off to form their own company that catered specifically to the Bag-In-Box market. They've had moderate success so far, but they're still relatively unknown. Coming from someone who's drank at least one Red Bull a day for the past 5+ years, this is the one Red Bull knockoff that actually tastes like the real deal. Echoing the poster from page 4 - if you can set up a keg with Roaring Lion syrup (at the right carbonation levels), you won't be disappointed.

WIN!!! i thought that same thought when i seen the little jug of energy drink mix at the store. i was gonna research if it would be possible. glad to hear it is. time to start a new kegerator with two taps and enough room for a full size comventional keg and a corny. cant wait lol.
so about how much vodka do you use per 3gal corny?
