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?
