  • Hey Casey - Alcohol is a pretty aggressive liquid and will leach unwanted chemicals out of plastic tubing. FDA 21 and NSF 51 only cover booze containing less than 15% alcohol. It’s pretty difficult to carbonize a liquid; it requires higher pressure and temperatures near the freezing point. In most fast food joints they’ll utilize ‘Carbonators’ and large aluminum ‘Cold Plates’ to carbonize the water that’s mixed with their soda syrups (check out soda supply websites for an example setup).

  • “Food Safe” certifications from the FDA and NSF are not necessarily the same as “Alcohol Safe”; I’d do your homework if you intend to drink/serve a lot of strong liquors through this pump. In my opinion the Peristaltic Pump is not the best option when building a bar – this was my bar from 2005: http://youtu.be/08s1ZFZcAaU

  • Would be funny to see this made into a small Arduino based Crane Game / Drinking Game.

No public wish lists :(
