Honestly, all sugar free energy drinks have a medicinal taste to me...especially Monster Lo Carb. I still like them, but I wouldn't point the finger at your water just yet.I recently made the diet version. I used filtered water, but it tastes a bit weird. Its drinkable but not very good, it almost has a chemical flavor. I'm wondering if its my water, although my water tastes just fine.
You've heard about americans ordering prescriptions from mexican and canadian pharmacies, right?So what would be the best way to add more caffeine to a homebrewed version of Red Bull?
This is a joke, right? First search for caffeine powder hit SciFit Caffeine Powder at Amazon, bodybuilding.com, etc. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002VOB0DO/?tag=skimlinks_replacement-20Caffeine is a controlled substance in America and cannot be purchased by consumers.
It is a supplement in both canada and mexico.
The internet is an amazing thing.
That stuff is heavily cut with crap that will NOT taste good in any drink. It's probably only 5% or less caffeine. Ever had a tylenol stuck in the back of your mouth? Only 99.9% pure is suitable for beverage making IMO... Anyways, yes, playing like it's illegal was only a joke. The part about it being potentially very dangerous, however, is not. I have only found pure caffeine available from a store in Canada. Search harder and you'll find it.This is a joke, right?

This is what I am doing right now. Have a 2-liter sitting in the kegerator at 30 psi. I doubt it will overcarb it, since most sodas are served at around 20-30 psi to begin with. Real Red Bull is awfully carbonated, I would like it with a little less carbonic bite to it.Any tips on force carbing the energy drink mix? I'm going to make a 3 gallon batch in my 5 gallon corny and hook up to CO2. I was thinking of setting at 30 psi, shaking for a few minutes and leaving overnight. Then dial down to serving pressure the next day. Will this method over-carb it? Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!
When I made mine, the water was already cold, but a just put it on 35lbs and shook the **** out of it for a couple minutes and then set it at like 10 psi and called it done.Any tips on force carbing the energy drink mix?

Havent actually tried it with a full keg yet, but my 2 liter bottle reeked of redbull after rinsing it a couple times. As with other soda products, I think dedicated lines and kegs (or replacing orings) is a must for this stuff.I plan on making this tonight in the extra keg. Have any of you used a keg for beer after having this product in it? Did you have to replace your seals, beer lines, etc.?
On the soda stream site it shows Splenda (sucralose) on the regular. All the ones I found at BBB had Splenda on the label, that is the only reason we don't buy them.Turns out BBB is a liar. Looking at the soda stream website, the regular has sucrose (standard sugar) and the diet energy has sucralose (Splenda).
Red Bull only sells it in cans. The energy drinks you order at a bar on the "gun" are cheap knock-offs. The product being dispensed comes in 3 gal bibs (bag in boxes) which the gun mixes with carbonated water.anyone know of a true redbull syrup? ... I was trying to look around but it seems that there are only knock-offs (from what ive seen)
Roariing Lion was created by people who actually worked at Red Bull, and split off to form their own company that catered specifically to the Bag-In-Box market. They've had moderate success so far, but they're still relatively unknown. Coming from someone who's drank at least one Red Bull a day for the past 5+ years, this is the one Red Bull knockoff that actually tastes like the real deal. Echoing the poster from page 4 - if you can set up a keg with Roaring Lion syrup (at the right carbonation levels), you won't be disappointed.anyone know of a true redbull syrup? ...

Fyi - a full corny keg of soda stream red bull premixed with vodka at a wedding is a BIG hit. Mine turned out really well - many comments that is was no difference between it and real red bull and vodka.
