    What you are doing is almost certainly illegal. Most states' cottage food laws don't include
    beverages. If you are using fresh juices, you'll need to have a HACCP plan in place. (I'm
    pretty sure that'...

    Is there any way to inject a predetermined amount of co2 into the bottle so that I don't need
    to guess how much more pressure is needed? Or does the regulator gauge tell you?You have to
    think of this ...

    At 40-60psi, you're probably at the limits of your overpressure valves on your regulator,
    unless you're using a regulator made for post mix machines.At any rate, what temperature are
    you dispensing at...

    WonderMellon,You do not need the yeast if you're force carbonating. You can decrease the sugar,
    but that's up to you. Add sugar to taste and you'll be ok.

    Thanks for the shout out sodandbeer. I'm glad you enjoyed the recipe.Daft, I know you've never
    been a fan of my work. Thanks for letting me know that there's a problem with my blog, though.

    You're in San Diego, so Jarritos soda should be pretty prevalent I'd wager. Like a 24 pack at
    your local Sam's Club. Any other Mexican soda would work, too, but the coke and pepsi bottles
    are screen p...

    Add to that the fact that local bottlers still use premix soda for special events (see: under
    "Special Events"), yeah, cornies will be around for a while yet. And yes, the average $35
    cornies were a...

    So, I'm gonna ask what everyone else is already wondering.Where'd you pick that up?Also, why'd
    you take off the stickers?

    So I installed a bathroom fan in my basement bathroom over the past couple of weeks (five min
    here, five min there really slows down progress). Felt pretty proud of myself. Then I came here
    and I am u...

    Check to see if it has a temperature adjustment screw/knob. Mine had a course and fine screw.
    BE CAREFUL as you can ruin your kegerator if you unscrew this too far! I made small adjustments
    over time ...
