    Club Soda can be expensive, seeing its basically R.O. water, and if you are lucky, maybe a few additives if its up market, with a commercial brand name. Remember these things are controlled by the Bean Counters and it’s all about profit.
    To make Club Soda in the WilliamsWarn is a breeze, use good filtered tap water, 20 litres of it, to this you mix up a solution of additives.
    Recipe:
    1 level teaspoon of iodized table salt
    2 heaped teaspoons of Epsom Salts
    4 teaspoons of Bicarb Soda
    Add this to the WW, lid on and seal, crank the pressure up to 2.8BAR and drop the temperature to 1.0Deg.C.
    During the day when you think of it, give it a couple of bursts of CO2 through the Clarification Pot, no need to open it or add any thing. This will hurry up the fizz.
    The next day you will have really spritzy Club Soda.
    You can’t use the font tap to pour a glass, too much pressure, but it bottles well with the WilliamsWarn Bottler.

    Hi,

    We have recently tried carbonating our homemade tonic water in our Williams Warn using this method of making soda and it works well. The only issue is the tonic water has developed a slight rotten egg/sulphur smell after we have done this. Our ingredients are all natural (cinchona bark, lavender, some citrus and sugar syrup). Just wondering if anyone has any suggestion as to what might be causing the sulphur smell (the taste is very good). We treat our own water using a triple stage filtration system and have noticed no such smell in our water so wondering why it would be developing this smell only when we made soda water in our WW. Any suggestions most appreciated.

    We used this method to carbonate our own tonic water (made from chincona bark, lime juice, lavender and sugar syrup). It worked well except that we have noticed it has picked up a slight rotten egg smell. The taste is fine. We filter our own water and have carbonated it using soda stream and not had any problems. I would be grateful for any suggestions as to what might be causing this problem. Thanks in advance Andrew

    We have tried carbonating our own tonic water (main ingredients are chincona bark, lime, lavender and simple syrup) in our WW. It worked well except that the tonic water has developed a slight rotten egg smell. Any suggestions as to what might have caused this to happen.
