Bob, thank you for the suggestion.  Do you just double the quantities
of sugar and yeast for a one gallon vs. 2 liter bottle?  Also, I
understood that the 2 liter bottles were good because they are made for
carbonated beverages, thus able to withstand some pressure and the
carbonic acid.  What comes in a one gallon jug that has CO2 in it?
(No, it's not a riddle!)

No, use one gallon juice jugs, they don't tip over, and will last

2- 3 of them will work on a 55 gallon tank.

I use a 4 cup measuring cup my wife has, I fill it sort of round at the 4 cup line, so I probably use 4.5 cups. I am guessing that is too much as there is sugar left when the bottle dies from alcohol poisoning. I do get about 3-4 weeks per run. I try to change a bottle every week or so. I use bakers yeast, ought to try beer or something else drinkable ;-) I really ought to get bottled CO@, but my wife is remodeling the house and burning up the loose change. She got me my second 55 when we moved in, so for the time being I'll humor her.
