So far so good. I'm still producing plenty of CO2 and guiding the bubbles into the filter seems to be working quite well. Thanks guys!

Mine produces well and my house temperature averages 78 in the day and 74 at night. Production drops off at night a little but I never run dry in my bell diffuser. I think it is putting about 12 ppm CO2 in the water or there abouts.

I use room temperature water in my 3 liter bottle, 3 cups sugar, 1/2 teaspoon yeast and 1/4 teaspoon baking powder. This lasts about 3 weeks or so and produces more than I can ever diffuse with a bell. I mix the yeast all alone in about 1/2 cup of tap water that just starts to feel warm, about 90 degrees or so. Once it makes a bubble I put it in the bottle and have production in less than 12 hours.

For more reliable production, I would set up a double bottle system so that they can be changed out at different times and not interupt the flow of CO2. I will probably switch to 2, 2 liter bottles when I find the posting that had those cool connectors for bottles.

Anyone know where that post is?
