Anyone tried it before?

I don't think my coffee maker is set up to do the 5-gallon batches necessary to keg and force-carb...

Also, coffee's flavor tends to degrade in mere hours, even when refrigerated. How long would it take to empty a keg? Would the refrigeration and CO2 preserve the coffee better than refrigeration alone?

Not sure. Should be a fun experiment to try. Iced toddy retains it's flavor for quite some time so if sealed I think it could last.

You could possibly do a cold-press and then chill that and carb it up..

But, why?

Could be done with one of those soda fountain bottles or maybe one of those whipping cream canisters with a CO2 charger.

I'd swear that the StarBucks doubleshot cans are sealed with nitrogen given the way they foam up when opened.

Make it extra strong, fill a funnel with ice and put it over a 1liter bottle. Pour the coffee over the ice, slap a carbonator cap on and shake with 30psi on it. No, I've never tried it.

Do this, and tell us what happens.

Fizzy toddy...

I say try it, but I can't imagine it being that great.

Try adding a shot or two of espresso to some club soda. You could also add some terrible liquor and kool-aid to it then BAM! Homemade Four Loko.
