1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon of yeast for every quart of water. Same as Koolaid! You should be fine with an Ocean spray 3 liter container filled 80% with the water.

What works best for me is to add the sugar to the room temp water in the bottle and shake it till dissolved. gently sprinkle the yeast on top of the water and let it hydrate for 5 minutes. It will begin falling to the bottom and appear to foam on the surface. Then gently rotate the bottle so the yeast mixes with the water.
