Re: CO2 problems
The amount of the packet of yeast is just one part of a problem. I use a
packet of wine yeast that is 5 grams. As I said I use Active Dry Wine Yeast
which holds up to alcohol better then baking yeast. Also the way the mixture
is mixed could be a problem. I mix 4 cups of warm water and the sugar first
to break down the sugar then I pour in 2 cups of water at room temp. Then I
pour the yeast in and do not shake or mix it let the yeast do it's thing on
top. I get 2/3 weeks per mix. The room temp is another part of an answer.
When my air cond. with down the house got hot the mix lasted a few days.
If the brew sits in the sun forget it, if your house is low temp. air cond.
all the time like mine it will help.
