Re: DIY CO2 Bottle Leakage

also provide the temperature of the liquid in the co2 bottle, that would 
help a lot, thanks. It also can take up to 24 hours before the new batch 
starts bubbling imho.

I use 2 cups sugar, 1/2 tsp Fleischman Rapid Rise yeast and a pinch of 
baking soda, mixed with warm tap water.  It starts working almost right away 
and spends, oh, a couple of hours pushing the water out of the airline 
before CO2 bubbles out.

I've never had a bottle last longer than 2 weeks, but I suspect now that 
I've had a leak all along so I'm curious to see how long my latest batch 
will last.  I've read all kinds of recipes to keep batches going longer but 
I guess I'm just too lazy to investigate.

I also don't know the exact temperature of my mix but the ambient air 
temperture in my house is about mid to high 60s in the winter.
