Re: CO2 recipe & measures

Hello Zero!

If one is talking about American measures, a "cup" is ~250 mL; a "quart"
is ~ 1 Liter and 1 "gallon" is ~ 4 L (actually 3.78 L).

There is NO "best" recipe for creating DIY CO2. Each yeast is different,
behaves differently, produces CO2 at a different rate. 

In Romania, people are familiar with wine-making. Select a yeast that is
slow and long acting. Or use baker's yeast. 

A 5-10% sugar solution would be a good point to start experimenting. You
want a slow but steady evolution of CO2, not a rapid fermentation that
slows down significantly after a few days.

Good luck!
