Default can you use the co2 given off by a homemade brew of beer?

Can you use the co2 given off by a homemade brew of beer for your CO2 supply for your fishtank or are there other gasses given off in the reaction that could hurt the fish?

Yes, alot of people do this with home brewing setups. Just make sure your air lines are well above the foamy bit (krausen?) so it doesn't get into them (and potentially clog).

A pH controller does have its uses, and if you have the money to spare, it can be a nice investment.
