CO2 Yeast

it took about a day and a half before the pressure in the bottle
was high enough to push bubbles into the tank.  After about
ten minutes, the pressure dropped and the bubbles stopped.
Any ideas how to keep the pressure up?<<

J: it sounds like you may have a leak in your DIY CO2 setup.  Use soapy
water around the connections (cap, air hoses, etc.) to test for leaks.  If
you don't have leaks, your recipe could be off, or your yeast is too old.
