Re: How much yeast and whatever

I find that 1 tsp of yeast per 2-litre bottle is overkill.  I've
experimented with smaller amounts and found that there's very little
difference in CO2 production with as little as 1/4 tsp in a 2-litre
bottle.  With less than 1/4 tsp, the batch takes several days to get up to
full production, and the peak production rate is lower.  On the other
hand, the batch lasts longer.

Your mail client just dumped 150 lines of crap on the list, so that you
could give us 11 lines of text and 3 signatures in 4 notes.  Don't expect
me to go hunting you up.  Now, has anyone seen my cane around here...?
