DIY CO2 question


AC Members
I determined a bad check valve on my old CO2 setup. I got all new materials and replaced everything.

Last night the CO2 was cranking out on my new setup. Just this morning it isn't doing hardly anything.

What did I do wrong, maybe too hot of water in the 2 liter to activate the yeast?


No freelancing!
Possibly, but the truth is that DIY seldom performs consistently. There are too many variables that can't be readily controlled.
There are many variables.

I think when I did yeast based CO2, I never worried about the temperature of the water to activate the yeast, it generally activated as the water heated to room temperature anyways, it just took a while.

what is the temperature of the yeast mixture? I know if too low, it will stop working, which could explain why output was high, but has now stopped/slowed.
