iSi Whipped Cream Charger- Weird Taste

jackie | May 30, 2009 05:28 PM

I got an iSi CO2 whipped cream charger today at a garage sale with several boxes of really old co2 cartridges. I cleaned it all well, (it already seemed immaculate,) and put in sugar, vanilla, and fresh cream. Then I charged it.
Well, the whipped cream tastes STRANGE. Kind of fizzy like soda water. Anyone have any experience with this? I tried shaking the canister more, tried letting it rest for an hour, tried letting it warm up a bit at room temperature. Could it be the old co2? This seems strange, but I can't figure it out. Thoughts?
Thanks chowhounders!
