SodaStream'd my beer
 
I wanted to taste my beer as I was bottling it, I have a soda stream and naturally, I had to try it!
Worked GREAT!

I put two 1L bottles threw, and refrigerated them and I had beer the same day!

It got a little messy, but after the first trail I figured it out. I wouldn't recommend going out and buying a soda stream just for this reason, because kegging equipment is almost the same price. But If you already have a SS give it a try and tell me what you think!

Instead of SodaStream, you could just charge your beer with CO2 from your kegerator like this.

i have attempted to soda stream beer from a growler, it worked aside fromt he explosion upon removal from soda stream. How do you minimize explosion?

You can't charge your beer to soda carbonation levels - soda has something like 3X the carbonation of beer. If you do charge beer like soda then you will always have a mess. Problem is I don't believe that SodaStream has an adjustable carbonation level, at least not one that will go low enough for beer.

Instead, follow the link I sent to you but set your CO2 regulator to 15 PSI instead of 40 PSI.

Ha, Nice link thargra, I just checked it out. Looks pretty easy and affordable!

What technique did you use not to blow beer all over the kitchen? I did try this once and MAN what a mess. I would love to know how to make this work!

Isn't this going to gunk up -- and subsequently destroy -- the SodaStream?

So, what method did you use? I would be nice to know as I really don't want a messy trial. I think it would be really tough to keep it from over fizzing and making a foamy mess when I went to release the air.

Do it like this link shows, but instead of setting your regulator to 40 PSI, set it to 15 PSI.
