I just ordered some more ingredients an I'd like to carbonate the whole 5 liters (or what I can) of soda. Can I charge the keg with my charger? and how many co2 cartridges would it take and for how long? if it's not possible what would be another approach?
I don't know for sure, but I've used those keg chargers before to dispense beer. It sure seems like it will take a LOT of cylinders to carb up 5 liters of soda with the chargers. The other thing is there is no regulator, so you could potentially blow up a little keg.
