Default Anyone got a recipe for diet pepsi?

Never thought of making soda before (thank you so much for not calling this "pop" making) but SWMBO drinks about 48 cans of it a WEEK. If anyone has a recipe it has got to be cheaper to make it myself.

The most common base cola recipe available is the "Open Cola" project.

OpenCola (drink) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The ingredients are not terribly easy to come by, but you can find them all online.

Here's a FANTASTIC episode of "This American Life" that discusses the production of cola. Listen you wont me dissappointed.

Original Recipe | This American Life

I would suggest buying a pre mixed cola flavoring, then add in your own diet sweetener.

Sweeteners will be the hard part of making a diet cola...

Aspertame: 200x sweeter than sugar minimal aftertaste. aka, Equal, Nutrasweet, Canderel. Looses sweetness if heated

Cyclamtes: First artificial sweetener. 50x sweeter than sugar. Illegal in the USA.

Saccharin: 30x sweeter than sugar. Metallic Aftertaste. Illegal in Canada.

Sucralose: 600x sweeter than sugar. Minimal aftertaste. Aka, Splenda.

Acesulfame Potassium: 200x Sweeter than sugar. Aka, Sunett.

Because sucralose has 83% of the calories of sugar, by weight, and you'll have to use SO LITTLE it's exactly what I would suggest. Though nothing will ever beat real sugar.

Questions class?
