[APD] Now, some tedious yeast CO2 questions
The yeast CO2 setup works well as long as the yeast is alive and bubbling (DUH). Here's the thing. I read all these reports on the Net about people who replenish the yeast mixture every two weeks but mine is fizzling out after a couple days. I have 2 two-liter bottles running on a 55 gallon tank. In each bottle I used this mixture: 1 liter water, 1 cup sugar, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1 Tablespoon molasses, 1 Tablespoon protein powder, 1/2 tsp yeast. I got the recipe from the aquatic gardener's website. I used regular baking yeast. The weather has been warm here, about 80-85 and I'm frugal so I've not been using the a/c, just running the ceiling fan. Can ambient room temps cause the yeast's life expectancy to drop? I'm getting a bubble every minute to two minutes if I'm lucky. A day to two days after mixing the mixture I was getting a bubble every three to six seconds and the bottles were bubbling like club soda.
