Here is a question I have I am new to this but I had an idea... I was thinking about buying a 5 gallon box of the syrup and then could I use that when I use my Soda Stream instead of buying there bottles? And if I could use it how could I get the syrup out of the box??

I've thought of that too. It wouldn't be hard to add a valve to the box to get syrup out of it. You can find the connector online that screws to the syrup bag. Then add a piece of hose with a little valve on the end to open and close the flow of syrup.

Yeah I have seen a couple sites that have the "BIB Tapping System". Really all it you need is the right bib connector a bit of tubing and a picnic tap. Just connect it like you would for a corney keg but keep the tubing short and you have the same thing. I am not sure what the ratio with the soda stream is but the regular coke is 5 to 1. Also I would carbonate it after you mix the water and syrup.

Currently, what I do is the following;

the BIB bag comes with a lid which I unscrew, then if you look inside it, there is like a plastic ring which looks like an octagon with holes inbetween the centre, I just grabbed a screw driver and poked it until that lid fell into the syrup, then I just tilt the box and pour the syrup into a plastic bottle and refrigerate until I need to use it. Works like a charm.

Any questions I will post pics.

In this picture you can see that I just punctured the box to grab the tip of the bag so I can work on it




And here you can see it's got holes well before it had a white plate underneath the holes so I poked it with a screw driver and the plate broke off, leaving the open gap to let out the syrup, I just tilt the box and pour into a small container for storage.




*EDIT* Before I had access to the syrup bags I was buying the SodaStream syrups (eww), so once they got empty I use them now to add the real syrup and put them in the fridge. Hope this helps.

You could use something like this:

Sam's sells a picnic tap like adapter that can connect directly to non-coke bag in boxes.

One thing to remember about the soda stream is coke/pepsi mix uses more syrup. So you might want to mix your syrup in the bottle before you carbonate it.
