Hi All,

Co2 gets suspended, or more accurately, dissolved in water. When you shake the reactor bottle you are forcibly liberating the Co2 from the water, much in the same way you get an explosive reaction if you shake a bottle of soda before you open it. The yeast does not produce extra Co2 by shaking the reactor, you are only liberating the dissolved Co2 in the water the yeast is suspended in.

I do not believe it kills the yeast any further and have not seen any evidence to the contrary in my experience.
