I did a similar soda a long time ago when I first set up my kegerator. The problem that I ran into is that some of the zest got loose in the keg, so the first or second pint I pulled of it, some zest got into the dip tube and clogged it up. Next time I will be more careful about that.
The dextrin is for adding body to the soda. It doesn't add any sweetness.
I corrected the water amount to 4.5gals. After 20min of boil I ended up with about 5gals of soda.
