Bottling Soda made in the Soda Stream
My friends just bought a Soda Stream, and they are thinking about trying to transfer the seltzer they make into smaller glass bottles. They want to get a gadget that puts metal caps on glass bottles (like a home-brewer would use to re-use beer bottles). Will this work? Can seltzer that you make in a soda stream be transferred and stored in smaller glass bottles? Or will it lose carbonation? What about adding flavors?
Any experience or expertise would be great....I have a feeling this might not work, but I am not sure why it wouldn't.
They might check out what home brewers use to bottle their beer. From Ask.com, link to the 1st chapter on how to bottle homemade beer:
I'm interested in whether or not anyone has tasted a rubber-like flavor in plain water after carbonating with the Sodastream (not there before carbonating). My DH thinks I'm nuts...sigh.
re: Stephanie Wong
I'm curious more about the results of bottling carbonated water....in other words, if you took carbonated water and bottled it in glass bottles (as a home brewer would bottle beer), what would happen?
I realize that with homemade beer, the fizz is formed by the fermentation that is happening in the bottle after you've bottled it. But for already-carbonated water, this wouldn't be happening. So, would the carbonation remain? If so, for how long?
