i can't see why that wouldnt work however for the price of a bong and a diffusion downstem minus the bowl piece your still going to spend way more than on a large flask. Then again you can still use it for its intended purpose afterwords....i dont see why not. If you try to suck in though your going to take a hit of pure co2 which wouldnt be fun. SOmeone should try this and take pictures.

Oh- how would you plan to filter the pure o2 as not to contaminate the starter during aeration? You could always soak a sponge in starsan and shove it down the downstem....seems like a PIA. Ive obviously given this too much thought already

I'm finding a lot more money in my pocket now that I don't smoke regularly. More money for good beer.

How do you get a bass player to leave your front door?

Pay for the pizza.

I just had to prost this thread based on sheer hilarity alone..not because I advocate drugk use or anything...

Actually I quit that in my late twenties after smoking some laced crap, and puking on half of the Motown session musicians I was with (they weren't called the "funk brothers" for nothing.)

It took me a couple of years before they let me live it down......
