Has anybody ever tried bottle conditioning with dry ice? How much would you use? I figure just a sliver. Just think, it would carbonate and chill it at the same time.

The CO2 needs to dissolve into solution. The correct amount of dry ice to achieve the desired volume of CO2 will explode before it can dissolve

Don't think it'll work, but....
Assuming you want 2.4 volumes in a 355 mL, (and if I remember right, one "volume" is an equivilant volume of CO2 at STP). 2.4 volumes * 355 mL gives http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&hs=TN2&q=(101.325+kPa+*+852+mL)%2F(8.3143+J%2FK%2Fmol+*288.15+K)&aq=f&oq=&aqi=. 0.036 moles at 44 grams per mole is http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&hs=yO2&q=(101.325+kPa+*+852+mL)%2F(8.3143+J%2FK%2Fmol+*288.15+K)*44+g%2Fmol&aq=f&oq=&aqi=. With a solid phase density of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_dioxide, you will need just about exactly http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&hs=Vnh&q=(101.325+kPa+*+852+mL)%2F(8.3143+J%2FK%2Fmol+*288.15+K)*44+g%2Fmol+%2F1.562+g%2FmL+in+cubic+centimeters&aq=f&oq=&aqi= of dry ice per bottle.
