No it doesn't. You aren't drawing in CO2 when you release your hand from the bottle. All you've done is just sucked back in the O2 you "purged". Bottles don't breath like humans do.

If you put the carbonator cap on before releasing your grip all the O2 would be displaced. Then when you connect the CO2 QD it should fill with CO2 only. I think thats what he was getting at.

So it has everything but the Taurine more or less.

lol. yeah he means to squeeze it and cap. thats what I do with my carbinator caps. i bottle a 20 oz bottle with my wand and then do the squeeze technique. works like a charm.

I am going to make some of this for my sons 1st birthday. there will be some <21 peoples there and they will want to drink from a keg. plus soda kegstands? get them ready for college!

Thanks OP, I cannot wait to get some soda/energy drink going.

oh, rambling, what about mixing the energy and some cola mix, get a kind of monster cola kinda vibe? I may have to try this when I get my kegs early next week, will report back....

Never kegged soda, just beer. Is this something I can put up in a spare tap-a-draft bottle successfully? Anyone have experience? I'd love to try it, but hate to go to the expense of a little soda machine or running soda through my keg setup.

Oh well, guess I'll just have to drink twice as much now that it's economically viable. Could also concentrate the mix to bump it, but I don't know how that will effect flavor.
Seems like you should be able to concentrate it. I mean everything is in lesser amounts than Red Bull including calories and sugar. I'd try to concentrate it and see how it tastes. I may have to check this out. Red Bull is my energy boost of choice.

I thought kegging soda's could provide off flavors for the tubing/keg? I know that all of the kegs were originally soda kegs, I just remember reading somewhere on here that you should just add the syrup after you've dispensed the water.

I've had problems with syrup in old corny kegs so you probably bring up a valid concern. Maybe it'd be better if you had a dedicated keg with dedicated tubing for this?

I got a couple of the bottles of syrup today. The energy one did taste just like Red Bull, but the Cola one, not so much.
