I have DIY CO2 as well. using a juice bottle with a super glue tube on the top of the bottle. attached at the end is an air stone.
Using Hodgson Mill active dry yeast. I put in 8.75g:icon_excl with 3/4 cup sugar and warm water and mixed it all up and put it in the 32fl oz bottle.
After the yeast activating and foaming up, A large shot of CO2 shot some of yeast mixture into the tank. I would say its not a significant amount. Anyone have that happened to them before and what were the consequences?:help:

I agree with everything that has been said so far; a check valve as well as a separator will help prevent future overflows in the future. In the meantime, a partial water change is best, especially if you want to be on the safe side.
