Wife has us both starting this Keto Diet, been doing less and less processed foods passed 6months, so differently starting to feel better! I always thought the gluten and no carb thing was a fad, but I’m still not giving up certain foods. Even found a awesome Herbal Chai Tea recipe drink “been trying to give up tea, coffee and 90% caffeine” . So life has been slowly getting better for us, and starting to physically feeling better makes a huge difference in your daily lives.

Anyways, not going full Keto, I’m just not given up certain foods :) ,
I started looking into doing home brew soda when we was back in Bend Oregon And Boise Idaho has a crap load of micro breweries. you can make a healthier soda with great benefits. Anyone do there own drinks?

Thx,
Knight’

    My kids use my beer brewing equipment and make rootbeer, orange soda, and purple drank "grape".  No sugar added, all honey and extract kits.  Pretty darn good.

    As soon as I noticed Keto in the preview of the post, I immediately thought this was another keto spam post, lol.

    kegs are reserved for my beers.  Biggest thing with homebrew soda is to use PET bottles because you are going to add a tiny bit of yeast to let them naturally carbonate under pressure in the bottles.

    So, ya dont get that nasty CO2 the big name soda use in their sodas. 
     
    Me personally will be doing the PET bottles to get the desired lighter carbonation, then transfer into glass bottles with bottle caps...

    wait why?  why carbonate in PET bottles, then open them (releasing carbonation) and rebottling in glass?  I can't see the benefit or utility in doing this whatsoever.  You don't avoid CO2..  The yeast in the PET bottled produce CO2, and your keg systems use CO2.  "carbonation" is CO2.
     
    Do one or the other.  Just use PET bottles and pour the soda into a glass slowly when you drink it.  or, Keg the darn stuff in a 2.5 gallon keg and put it under CO2 at 7psi for a week before you drink it.
     
    As far as "nasty CO2" I know some places talk about "beverage grade" CO2.  I just go to the local welding supply shop and get the nasty CO2.  I think the gas is the same purity but the filling equipment, and filling areas are cleaner for the beverage grade stuff.

    also, don't even get me started about the time I tried to bottle carbonate a stout in a 64oz growler...…  When it exploded it shook my whole house.  Thank goodness I wasn't holding it or moving it to the fridge or something.  Dumb rookie mistake, but don't try to use glass for a naturally carbonated soda (even if you used PET first I guess)

    Was saying just use the PET till I got it all figured out, then do the soda in glass after I have all the math figured out. And was referring to liquid co2 vs natural carbonation.

    skip the glass, the bottle caps, and the capper.  the math can be perfect and you will still have random explosions.  https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/j5ze3p/california-man-injured-after-corona-bottle-explodes-like-glass-hand-grenade
     
    save your money and your eyes.  PET only.  You've been warned.

    I wonder if you took the keto diet, and every other "fad diet" I've heard of, blended them together, and you'd get a diet of eating nothing at all. however if you watered them all down to be less extreme, then blended you might have something healthy.
    That's my thoughts on keto or any other trendy diet, good idea in general, but taken to an extreme that isn't.
     
    Decreased sugar I can get behind, just not zero carbs. More directly on topic making your own soda sounds like it'd be a good way to lower sugar (provided you use less) and replace normal soda. I'd just use less sugar (not swapping for any other sweeters, no matter how natural), which I assume is the whole point.
    I've tried to almost stop drinking soda from drinking 3-4 cans a day (or 2-3 1/2 liter bottles, and... somehow managed to do it (don't ask me how I've done it, I'm not sure how I've manged to stick with it so well)
