I don't think so since I've read that others had to bump up the pressure to use it.

Something tells me that it might work but you would would have to zero leaks. Won't one of these blow up if you made the mixture and sealed the bottle? That sounds like more than 30psi, doesn't it?

What would Honey Badger do?

I remember having success with ceramic diffuser and yeast Co2, but as oldpunk stated, you need to have zero leaks, otherwise you won't build the required pressure. I wouldn't recommend trying it though, the pressure inside the plastic bottle was very high and I was scared all the time it's would detonate and mess up my room You'll end up better using a co2 ladder (poor diffusion) or hooking up the co2 line (remember to add that check valve) into the canister filter (great results).

No. DIY CO2 like trying to bake a cake with a lighter, anyway.
