2 liter bottles will take over 100 psi fine at room temps. Damaged shorts can be entertaining...

Compressed CO2 works out surprisingly expensive per use until you get up to 20 lb cylinders. Baking soda is super-cheap for the amount of co2 it contains, but I keep having pressure issues. Glue seams split, vinegar gets into the "good" liquid, acid attacks stuff, the little compressor I had planned to stick in a bag of room pressure CO2 isn't up to the task. Such is my world.

I'd rather not, but my next route is the fermenting sugar technique. Fortunately, I do have a Cornelius jug and a couple hoses from my days in theatres. At one point, long ago, I had a carbonator. Too heavy to move, long gone.
