I wanted to make soda, but didn't want to 'commit' any of my kegging equipment because of flavor contamination.

Instead, I filled up a keg with water and carbonated it. I bought some italian soda syrups online and whenever I want a soda, I simply pour a glass of seltzer water and add syrup to taste. Instant, easy, and delicious soda.

That's what I do, except my concentrates are Israeli. Not as sweet as most sodas. I've also purchased standard soda extracts and made concentrates. About the only way to get birch beer.

What ive been doing recently is mixing up my own sparkling lemonade. just grab a can of concentrate and instead of using water, use a liter of seltzer and 1 can of water. after that, you have a nice, lightly carbed lemonade. I havnt tried yet, but it definately seems like you might be able to dilute it down by using 2L of seltzer and still have it be good.
Primary: blueberry apple cider
Secondary: panty dropper cranberry apple cider
bottled: I should probably get some of those...
on deck: future brews suspended for the moment :(...
