EDIT: Ok... so apparently I'm not supposed to be able to blow through it. So follow up question, is this diffuser meant for a paintball system? Will my yeast setup generate enough pressure to use it?
I use one of those with DIY yeast CO2. Works fine. It shuts down easy if it starts to get clogged though.
