The mass will also rise with temperature, thanks to good ol' E = mc^2.

There is a YouTube video somewhere whe a guy pops of the top of a co2 canister to one of those soda water makers and puts dry ice into our to "refill it". Seemed to work, just looks dangerous. Introducing water, and unknown amounts of co2.

wouldn't a simple pressure regulator do the trick? Set it at 28 psi...you might need a ball valve between the reg and the keg.

My main concern would be that the pressure would increase faster than the CO2 could be absorbed into the beer. This is where a pressure relief valve would be essential for safety. My keg lids don't have them so I wouldn't try it but I'm interested in what you come up with. Please record video and state in your will that you want it posted to Homebrew Talk...just in case.

That sentence right there.

I had a friend who used dry ice to carbonate cider in PET bottles. It works but boy those bottles got tight.

So long as you have an adjustable pressure valve with the correct setting you will be safe enough
