That shoud be 1/2 teaspoon of yeast & enough water to fill to about 2" from bottom of air line in the generator.ryanr said:There's a heap of threads in the DIY section on CO2 generators, as well as some recipes etc.
Nutter (our resident plant expert) suggested to me the following:
- 2 litre generator
- 2 cups of sugar
- 1 tspn yeast
- 1 litre of luke warm water
I also have the Red Sea kit, and as it is only a 1 litre generator, simply halve everything above.
Cover hole, shake vigorously for a few minutes, attach air line. Should take about 24hrs to 'activate', maybe longer depending on environment (e.g. room temp etc)
I actually haven't changed out the original mix yet.Nutter said:That shoud be 1/2 teaspoon of yeast & enough water to fill to about 2" from bottom of air line in the generator.
Sorry Ryan, I thought I better correct that before people start firing PM's at me wondering why I use so much yeast & so little water.
Did you halve the measurements you have given above or did you just make a mistake in your post? If the above measurments are what you used, you will have high co2 production but not for very long.
Coffee is your friend. ;D It certainly is mine. Doesn't always seem to get the brain in gear though & the missus will tell you I don't have a brain so it can't be in gear.ryanr said:Yes I did make a mistake <sorry>, it's too early, brain not working yet.
