I don't know where else to ask this. My wife has a sugar intolerance - not just because it is fattening. I would like to make a sugar free soda but can't seem to find any information on this. Could this be made with artificial sweetener and force carbonated with a keg/CO2 system? Does anyone happen to have a recipe or link for this?

Yes, you should be able to force carbonate any beverage in a Keg. But I'm not sure where to find sugar free soda recipes . You may try replacing the sugar in a soda recipe with sweetener.

Since most sweetners are aweful chemical combos, try using Stevia.
I may not be an expert, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express........ 6 months ago.

I'd tend to use the same artificial sweetener that the wifey is used to- she probably has a favorite a diet soda now.
So far, I've had more experience thinking than I've had don't think they are mutually exclusive, do you?

72 batches so far,
48 wine, mostly Loquat, peach, plum, prickly pear
23 beers and ciders
1 sauerkraut
1 Tequila, from a prickly pear wine experiment that didn't work. I call it "Prickly Heat"

If you do try stevia WATCH OUT!! A little goes a long way. I tried it a few times being a diabetic myself but couldnt handle the taste.
