Re: [APD] Nutrafin CO2 problems

I had a brief flirtation with the Nutrafin/Hagen CO2 generator some years
ago.  It worked as advertised in warm weather, but when the temperature in
the house dropped to the mid 60's or lower (at night) the bubbles stopped.

Baker's yeast works best at temperatures in the 80's or higher.  Some yeasts
do better at lower temperatures, certain champaign yeasts, for example.

Some people keep the reactor in a container of heated water.

BTW, the reason one keeps baker's yeast in the fridge is to keep it in
suspended animation after the vacuum seal is broken.  Kept in the 70's, it
will spoil.
