[AGA-Member] DIY CO2 injection
I wanted to share a finding for you out there practicing DIY yeast/sugar CO2
injection. The system is much more reliable and constant if you use fructose
instead of sugar. Fructose is available in most grocery stores (Velveta I
think). One biologist colleague of mine thought that because fructose is a
simpler sugar than processed sugar, yeast don't have to work as hard to
start breaking it down.
Also, in the past I used epoxy glue to connect the airline tubing to the
recipient lid/cap. That took care of some recalcitrant air leaks with no
harm to the fish or yeast. And of course Teflon tape in between any threaded
opening and cap.
Just my two cents.
