sodastream soda extracts?
 
has anyone tried these?

instead of using their system, couldent i just force carb 5g of water, and than add the syrup to the keg?

they have an energy drink syrup(says compare to red bull) for only $6.99 which makes 3gallons.

they also have a ton of others like cherry coke, orange, petes choich/dr pepper, cranberry raspberry, ginger ale, orange mango, peach ice tea

i was reading a couple reviews that the energy drink tastes just like redbull, but some question the level of Caffeine(that its very low)

That's what I've been doing for the last 7 years (got a pint of Pete's Choice on the desk). But, I wouldn't pour an energy drink on a Russian thistle, so I can't comment on theirs.

what are ways to add more caffeine?

david_42 07-21-2010 11:49 PM

Liquid caffeine or tablets.

found out it has 30mg of caffiene compared to 80mg in redbull

You can get a bottle of 100 200 mg tablets for $5-6. Redbull is for amateurs.

So are those soluable in water? If they are and it's 80mg /100ml then thats......
50mg extra/100ml = 500mg/litre = 9450mg/18.9l = 47x 200mg tablets/18.9l
Don't trust me, I'm not a doctor!

i wonder how would these would work to add a drop into a pint of blonde ale or a wheat for every once in awhile when you want a fruit beer but dont want to be stuck with a full keg...or for guests

Works great. I've also used the sugar-free root beer flavor.
