I have been sitting for a while reading that and thinking about it... but it still doesn't make sense to me. If you shake a beer bottle, the CO2 goes into the atmosphere. In an inline reactor, the CO2 dissolves in the water. Does it matter how much it is stirred up? As long as it all dissolves?

... getting another beer, this one is flat ...
