Picked up a soda stream.. wasnt satisfied with the results since i will not be using their syrups.
For the most part.. i find them too sweet and just artificial .
I want to carbonate some teas some juices etc.
But not sure what the best method would be to get a good strong FIZZ.. similar to coke from the store.
I feel that once i mix my teas or add a flavor or let it restl.. the fizz dies out..
It defnitely carbonates the beverage.. but i want it to be cripser and better with more bubbles. more fizz.. more head.
So i researched other methods.
I see 2 methods.
One is with yeast and sugar.
and another works with a larger co2 tank.. some valves etc
this method requires the gas to be put in the water and then shaken to distribute gas and let rest.
It seems to produce a stronger fizz.
Anyone have any suggestions of what works?
Any pointers on some chemistry to help the beverage? I hear a hint of guar gum helps hold more bubbles?
thanks as always
