Create Nitro versions of your favourite drinks!
Using BiB (Bag in Box) / Post mix syrup + Water you can create your favourite branded drinks without the carbonation!
Ever wonder why drinks such as Coca cola taste better from Food outlets, Pubs, Bars that have a drinks dispensing machine?
Venues with drink dispensing machines use something called Post mix syrup. This is a concerntrate of the beverage that is watered down to a ratio 5:1 (5ltrs of water to 1ltr of syrup) when served and carbonated on demand.
We can recreate our favourite drinks at home using nitro + Save money per ltr vs what you would usually pay for bottled Pre mix soda.
Here is how: (Assuming your using 1Ltr iSi nitro dispenser)
- Measure out 200ml of Post mix syrup in appropriate container
- Add 800ml of preferably filtered water to your containter (if you want to make regular carbonated soda, Use soda water instead)
- Pour into dispenser
- Use 1 Nitro charger
Enjoy! It will stay good in your fridge for one week.
One case of BiB Post mix syrup is 7ltrs of concerntrate, Enough to make 35 ltrs of finished product. You can play with the ratio as much as you want eg 4 litres of water to 1ltr of post mix syrup (4:1) and if the finished product is to strong, Simply water down to 5:1 you can add more or less to your taste.
If using BiB post mix syrup also concider using a BiB Tap valve. Without this you will have an actual nightmare dispensing the concerntrate and storing the concerntrate after you are done.
We stock Coca Cola, Fanta, Iron Bru, Mountain dew, 7up, Mirinda, Sprite post mix syrups +The full SodaStream range if you want to try Nitro soda - (Can also be used with Soda siphon to create the origional carbonated drinks)
