Wow, drinking syrup straight? That would be hardcore.

Coming up with a homemade Dr. Pepper clone sounds like a lot of fun. Sure, it's probably not cheaper than buying a bulk box of syrup, but where's the fun in that?

Do you mix this in the glass, pre-mix it in a keg, or something else?

All the above if you have it. in the keg if you want, in a post mix system if you have one. Personally, I'd pour it into cleaned Torani bottles and stick a Torani pump on it and mix by the glass whenever I wanted it, but that's probably because I don't drink it quickly enough.

Just try to plan the transportation better than I did. A 60+ pound box filled with liquid is tricky ;-)

+1 on that transportation method! Sweet bike!! I have a Yamaha FZ6 that looks very similar. Very nice

It is hardcore, but from personal experience I can tell you it tastes almost like burnt sugar and the Mountain Dew syrup tastes like dish soap.

I have a buddy who gets Dublin Dr. Pepper for his bar from Party Time Beverage in Austin. This is the good stuff made with Imperial Cane Sugar.

$75 for a 5 gallon box of syrup.

I had an elderly neighbor who swore that Dr. Pepper was Honeysuckle syrup mixed with a cola base.

Thing is, I didn't know you could make/get Honeysuckle syrup.

Just to throw in my 2 cents. But 5 gallons of 5 to 1 syrup would make 35 gallons of finished soda. You can't forget the syrup starts out with 5 gal and you add 30 gal of water to that.
