The "Diffuser-ette"

After weeks on end searching for a viable solution to my DIY yeast Co2 diffuser problem, being fed up with switching airstones and trying to different glass, plastic, and ceramic diffusers, I realized when I stumbled upon a possible solution, the answer had been in my right hand all along!

Enter the "Diffuser-ette":
My take on a nano-diffuser. An acrylic, 3/4" cylindrical delivery vessel for DIY Co2 systems, with custom hole dimensions to accommodate Co2 inlet line, here represented with pneumatic air line, as well as a slighter than 3/16" outlet to accommodate a typical cigarette filter.

Let me know how cigarette filters have worked for you!!!!

Never used cig filters but I've that Cramming a length of a Bamboo skewer into the airline tubing works well to produce nice fine bubbles

Had to get back to my actual job but coming along. It will be hooked up tonight. Piece of cake. Only took 10 mins so far.. Probably twenty total by the end of it... Of course the machinery helps!!!
