I got my diy co2 up and running. Having never done this before, I'm wondering if it's doing what it's supposed to.

I just set it up about and hour ago and it's fizzing like no tomorrow in the bottle. I don't really have much for a diffuser, just a wooden airstone at the moment, but it's blow bubbles up to the top like an air pump. Is that normal? It just looks like this steady stream of very fine, almost pinhead sized bubbles.

Also, if I wanted to play smash the co2 with the impeller, how would I go about doing that (with a hob)? Cool

That's what it will look like. No matter how much co2 your yeast is producing, it won't match the output of an air pump, thus the smaller bubbles.

As far using the impeller method, simply jam the line from your co2 into the end of the intake tube hanging down from your hob.
