I've not used the epoxy mixer sticks myself, but a lot of other people have had great luck with them. I don't do much soda, but I have a 30' line for when I do.

It's really just root beer and Mr Pibb/Dr Pepper that are really problematic, and lines used for those sodas will ruin lighter flavored sodas too. Some people have had issues from cola too though.

Your just better off keeping that keg strictly for soda, or make sure you change out all the o-rings and poppets when you change over to beer then you can change them back if running soda again. Easier to just have a dedicated keg. And Bev-seal ultra 235.

I've made alot of soda over the years, and I found that I needed 30' lines to make the soda retain carbonation. 30-40 psi is the right pressure at fridge temps- I like mine at 30 psi, but I know David_42 said that his is more like 40 psi.

I bought some cheaper tubing, just for soda, from McMaster-Carr. I don't remember the model number, but I found it searching this forum. It was like 15 cents a foot- so much cheaper than beer line, but still food grade.

It was semi-rigid, so it was hard to work with, but it coiled up beautifully on the keg and that was a big plus.
