BTW...What's the scoop with sanitation. Should I pour the water on top of the foam or forget sanitation with this? I plan on kegging the water when I get back from Florida.

If you are talking StarSan then right over the foam is fine. At that amount the stuff has pretty much zero impact on anything. Besides letting you know it is doing its job of course.

Yes, StarSan. That's what I figured, just making sure.

Glad to help... did you do it full sugar or some combination of other sweeteners?

I'm used to the Splenda sweetener (generic actually but same diff) so don't really notice it as being "bad" or "off flavor" but I am curious how a full sugar version turns out.

Finally placed my order... I'll throw some H20 on tap this evening.

(the quart bottles which take the 1oz pump are now available on their site)

Has anyone ever seen a tonic concentrate? I could save a boat load with that!

I did all full sugar by the book. I was thinking though could you just boil 5 gal of sugar and water and keg it and just add a drop or two of the extract.

Also I spilled some of the blue raspberry extract on my hand. and now I look like Chevy Chase off of Vegas Vacation if you know what I mean.

You talking about adding a drop or two of the extract to the glass before you fill with carbed sugar water?

I would feel a little off handling the pure extract... so concentrated that any mistakes/variations between 'drops' would result in pretty big differences in end product. Not to mention god forbid it spill...

Thanks for putting all this info together and keeping up with the questions. I just placed an order for sass, cream soda, and mango. Seems like a good mix. I may have missed it in the previous posts, but I assume you have a dual output CO2 regulator. I'm guessing you don't carb your beer up to 30 psi, right? They way I have my kegerator built up, that's going to require some adjustments, but hopefully it is worth it.
