  I understand that you are misquoted quite often, however, not this
time. You were   responding to a question from Christopher Sprando
concerning wet/dry filters and C02   on March 17, 1995. The first
paragraph explained what a yeast reactor is, the second   and third told
how to build one, and the fourth was your recipe: "The recipe I use is  
3 cups sugar, 2 teaspoons of yeast and fill to within 3" of the top with
luke warm     water". The full text can be found at:
  That said, is this the problem, too much sugar (reaching toxic level
of alcohol too     soon and killing the yeast prematurely)?
