bigger tanks,55+ gal. and DIY CO2

I was wondering if anyone was attempting or had a working CO2 system on a 55+gallon tank. I have a 75 and would like to know what the major obstacles are for a DIY CO2 project of this size.

Your only problem is the limited amount of CO2 that can be produced by a DIY 2 liter bottle. It makes sense to me that you can do DIY on any size tank you want - you just might end up needing 20 2L bottles to get the CO2 levels where you want them.

so the only thing holding people back is the need for a container bigger than 2-liters to build a system?? Ive heard something about not being able to keep the system balanced.. like If I did have a larger container... like a small air tight bucket for example, from what ive been told the production of CO2 in that amount is far from a constant level..
