My cheap eBay regulator is a Draught Technologies. My other regulator is a Taprite Fasco.
Other than one being blue and one grey, the look and operate identically.

It's obvious to me now that it isn't an issue with "capture" but that of airflow, it's availability and pressure differentials.
I think cracking a window in the room would go a long way to solving your problem.
My beer will be just above 1.060 and I like to use a starter to kick things in faster.
too much yeast can also lead to undesirable flavours. you want to try and target the ideal yeast populations. When yeast are reproduceing they metabolize ester precursors so too much yeast can result in a overly fruity beer.
A fast start is not a 100% desirable thing, even when things appear quite those yeast are working there butts off.
not to say you shouldn't make a starter but you should figure out if you have to first. a couple 100 ml of clean healthy yeast might well be plenty.
I've got a couple of these: http://www.beveragefactory.com/draftbeer/regulator/double/premium_double_gauge_beer_co2_regulator.shtml
One triple gauge and one double gauge and they've worked great.
I agree with this recommendation. I have that exact regulator and it has been great. My old one needed a screwdriver to set the pressure and I hated it for a really long time. When the old one finally died, I got this one with the large knob and I was wishing I'd have made the switch years earlier.
I was also laying awake last night thinking about this. Maybe at least put a chip in for either economy or even more get up and go. If the remote unlikelihood the motor ever needs replacing a 3.5L fits in the engine compartment! Hehe might have to look into a tune. Get the TDI and fix up the Rabbit! Of course we're not talking about saving anything at that point. Just fun!
A car that's paid for vs $25,000.00 in debt? Really?
I actually do keep a clean never-used-on-anything-else toilet brush for scrubbing cornies.
That's a very dangerous game if you have roommates.
. But don't aerate the wort with your toilet plunger.
no wonder i make s***ty beer
