Angry Shaking Things Up

After I shake my diy co2 bottle I get a fast stream of bubbles for a couple of seconds. After that it takes awhile for the bottle to re-pressurize. Is this normal, or should I suspect a leak?

40 gallon SeaClear Acrylic, 192 watt Orbit Lunar PC, Filstar XP2, Filstar XP1, JBJ Regulator, Rhinox 5000 glass co2 diffusor, 9 watt UV sterilizer, Hydor Inline Heater, Pool Filter Sand substrate
Filstar pimp #53

How comes shoppings so stupid, looks at all this stuff I haves, what do I do's with it.

It could either be a leak or a weak batch. If this is the first time using it I would suspect a leak. A good trick is to wipe soapy water (dishwashing liquid) around the connections to test for a leak. If it is leaking it will blow a bubble in the soap. If you find no leak, then try a new mix.
