As long as you dig deep and really let out a good one... I'd say Yes.

Oh dang man I was laughing my a$$ off and lord knows it takes a lot of laughing when your a$$ is as big as mine.

Drinking the yeast off the bottom of the bottle does it for me. Think the fermenting smells bad

trying to make a dutch cider, eh? You will have to make sure you get the caps on really quick. Come to think of it, it might be easier to keg than bottle with methane just make sure to distract the cider with something pretty to look at so you can catch it off guard and slam the lid on tight.

You *should* be able to, you'll just need a length of tubing and a filtration system.

I agree. Seems like a waste of perfectly good fuel.

The problem would be in getting a system to store it under pressure long enough for you to use it without it escaping..
