In my house, that is very temperature dependant. On a warm day 20 minutes. In the winter, if I don't keep them in a waterbath, a couple hours. (I usually keep them in a waterbath.)

The one with the water in it is a bubble counter, or looks like one. So if some of the recipe gets into the water, and then somehow get's into it's output line, it goes to the protective empty bottle, and not into your tank. I believe that's how they set it up.

The empty is there to prevent "spillover" from the yeast mixture into your tank. Anything coming out of the CO2 source will collect in the empty, while the gas will exit clean.

yep... my design with the water is just so that the co2 going into the tank is definately free of everything... the third bottle is there to prevent a disaster if part 1 and 2 fail
