Pressurized CO2


Well... I've come to the conclusion that I would LIKE to go pressurized. I don't like the DIY just because the levels all flunctuate too much. The co2 produce swings and so does the ph, etc.

So I was wondering how much it would cost me for a pressurized system. (Canadian). Or do you think I should go without co2? Or do you think I should try to stick with DIY. The new tank is a 40 gallon.

I would go pressurized and split it off to both tanks. I am too lazy to mix that much yeast, sugar and water (man.. that sounds really bad)

I can't split off. The tanks are too far apart. One will be in my living room while the other will be across the house in my laundry room. I really only want it for the 40 gallon.

If you have a basement, run the tubing to a wall outlet or cold air return and then back out.

It'll cost about $200 Canadian.

Nah, same floor. But the parents would never agree to it. They aren't as cool as you guys.
