Business Plan

  • Make it.

      • Mate if we're aiming for ethical excellence might be Guayaki in Sebastopol [6]
      • for 50L ~ 100 bottles
        • Assuming 500ml bottles
        • We could also use 333ml bottles
    • Brew it (Morten: "Sounds fun. I'm in")
      • Will we need a vat?
        • (Morten: If necessary use my 15L pots and make several batches.)
        • Do we have a vat?
        • Hol has a keg.
        • Can a metal worker at sudo make us a vat
    • Spice it if necessary
      • Following this makerzine guide[4] maybe
      • Or allow adventurous sudoer to blaze trail
        • Noise bridge already made something called "Sudo Pop", which is up our alley. [1]
    • Carbonate it
      • Bobby, David Wild's roommate does this
        • Ask him nicely
        • Pay him
      • Buy a soda-stream
        • (Morten: "I think this would be very expensive. Might be possible to use a real "carbonater" thing, I know Tom's dad has one.")
          • Eric the metal Worker has one I just found out Maximilianklein (talk) 22:02, 7 April 2013 (PDT)
          • Patrick has a sudostream, and suggests these tutorials [5]

      • Does it require refrigerated storage?
      • Do we have a refrigerator
