    actually, you can lock this thread now. i just made up a recipe using only 1 cup of water. it fucking stinks, i can't even sit in my room anymore.

    this is the recipe:
    1cup of tepid water
    1tbsp dextrose (or sugar)
    1/2tsp active yeast

    just mix the water and sugar until dissolved and then stir the yeast in and shazam, you got free co2

    its a touch and go thing. just mix yeast and sugar in some warm water. the higher the yeast to sugar ratio, the faster co2 is made

    You should be using a LOT more water, bro! I've never made C02 with this method, but I've read that people generally use anywhere from 2-4 gallons of water for each 1-2 tablespoons of yeast, and 5lbs of sugar. This particular method also recommended putting the yeast on a piece of toast, which could get consumed and sink to the bottom and speed up the whole fizzing process. Or something along those lines. I can't remember exactly. But I'd imagine that the smell would be much more tolerable using larger amounts of the main ingredients.
