Default 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

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.

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!

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