Seems like they are rather expensive, 3 refills that will make 48 x12 oz cans costs $54 plus you have to buy the bottles and gas refills? My math indicates over $2/per can or $24 for a 12 pack which normally sells for $4 at the store. Something does not add up!!

Never in doubt, often wrong

I have an old Sodamistic machine that was given to me over 20 years ago... I remember I used to be able to buy the syrup and special bottles for it back then. I wonder if it's anything like the Sodastream you guys are talking about. Until I saw this thread, I had never even given it a thought about taking it camping, but if I can still get the CO2 cartridge refilled and get some new bottles for it, it might be worth considering! Just did a quick check, and apparently Sodamistic is still in business and they look like they deal with Sodastream cylinders as well. Here's their link for anyone who's interested: Sodamistic - Home

Since we're all tinkerers here anyways... It's an easy enough process to DIY.

I used to do a lot of homebrewing so I had everything on hand, but the initial layout for everything would be in the neighbourhood of $100 and you can refill a 5 lb tank for about $12. One 5 lb tank lasts us over a year and we go through a liter or two every day - way cheaper than getting locked into a proprietary SodaStream cartridge system.

Here's one version written out although home brewing stores have much better connectors than bicycle valves.

Bed Bath and Beyond does the $15 exchange, too.

I like it, because I live in a 550 ft2 condo - and it's a third floor walk-up. Between lugging heavy soda and finding a place to store it, the SodaStream won me over. Even though I know it possibly costs more, it's worth it to me. And the CO2 bottles fill about 60 liters, so a quarter a liter plus a little for flavoring isn't that bad.

It also keeps a bunch of cans and bottles out of land fills.

I don't get lost, I go on interesting side trips.
