I purchased an isi soda siphon. Instructions say it is only for carbonating water but I am experimenting with making ginger ales and root beers.
According to the instructions the small Co2 canister you attach shoots all it's contents into the canister at once. Then you are supposed to shake the canister and pull the trigger to dispense.
My question is this... If I were to allow the Co2 more time to carbonating the drink and absorb into the liquid... could I dispense directly to a bottle and quickly cap it? I am not expecting it to stay carbonating for months... but if i could get 2 weeks I would be excited.
It would appear a lot of the Co2 would be lost while dispensing the drink. Could I (safely) unscrew the cap and then pour the soda into bottles or would it be hazardous due to the pressure?
