Large DIY CO2 Generator
I went to a local beer and wine store. They have a device that is used for
pumping wine or beer. (I don't make wine/beer and have know idea why they
pump it). It is 7 or 8 litres made of very durable plastic. It has a pump
handle on top that can be sealed and locked. To one side of the top there
is a hole with a screw on lid. The lid has a hole for tubing. On the other
side at the top is another hole with screw on lid. This lid has a spring
loaded pressure release valve. It reminds me of the valves that were on top
of old pressure cooker lids but of course they did not have a spring.
This seems like an ideal vessel for yeast CO2 generation. It costs under
15.00 Canadian. I do have some questions.
Anybody seen or tried to use something like this?
Is it too large?
How full does it need to be to work? (Could you make a four litre mixture
or would pressure be a problem?)
If it might work would I just take the 2 litre pop bottle recipe and
multiply by 4?
Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving to the readers in the US.
