    I make a magnesium bicarbonate water (instructions here http://www.afibbers.org/Wallerwater.pdf). but i really like sparkling water. I bought a used soda stream. My question is if i use the magnesium bicarbonate as the liquid base to put in the machine and it injects co2. what is the final product in the water??

    Depends upon the environment.

    and that includes the pH of the water.
  4. Yes you will be getting a magnesium bi carb with this. If you are follwing your instructions it is said you are using a Milk of Magnesia ie OH . A point to note with ths is make sure there is no Aluminium additive in your Milk of Magnesia (in some there is). You could also use a Magnesium Carbonate Lite which is a mix of magnesium hydroxide and carbonate (you get it from a lab supplier). Putting this in will flip it to a magnesium bicarbonate. Making bicarbonates is very interesting ....if you research the 'alkaline' minerals they are 'all' soluble in a bicarbonate form.

    I regularly use the Cabononat Lite mix (have done for 5 years) and find it to be great pre activities/sports or late in evening before bed.
