Since this seems to be reported only with yeast CO2 generators, it may
be relevant that the yeast produce more by-products than just CO2. A
variety of other volatile compounds -- alcohols, aldehydes, ketones,
esters -- are produced, and these may be supporting the growth of some
microorganism in the reactor.
