Hi Erik

Yes, dry yeast is perfect for CO2. My set is working from 1st of july and
only now starts to decrease a little but still outputting 1 bubble/second.

3 cups sugar into 2 liters tap water and shake till sugar is dissolved
1 tsp bakink soda and shake till all is dissolved
1/2 tsp dry yeast (don't shake)

After 1 day or less (depends from room temperature) will work.

Good luck and regards       Ezio
