    Damned cans are lined with BPA plastic.

    All the cans.

    And so is Goslings fabulous ginger beer.

    Going to beg the latter for bottles and buy a soda stream for the
    former, with accessorty glass bottles.

    Well, damn.

    Doesn't soda stream require a CO2 cylinder for each bottle? How well
    does it carbonate? I like really "hard" bubbles.

    Again I say, damn. :-(

    But thanks for telling me.

    Yes, it does, and the cheapest you can replace them is by bringing them
    into Bed, Bath and Beyond and exchanging them, preferably with a BBB
    coupone. $12-$15 instead of $30 each.

    Yes.

    I can replace the seltzers, but what about the Goslings??? Unbelievably
    good stuff.

    I am so bummed. :-(

    Oops, NO.

    I've read that each cartridge is good for 60 of their bottles or so.

    Have to recheck, but I'm pretty sure.

    Wait.... $30 each. Each *what*? Not cartridge surely. I used to use a
    soda syphon, and I bought cartons of cartridges, and they weren't that
    much.

    I must go do some research.

    I've read that they're $30, unless that's a pair or a box?

    $49.99 for the size to make 130L. Not a good price in my book!
