What do you think is in those two hagen packets? Its Yeast and Bicarbonate of Soda! Geezs

I use sugar to the line, a teaspoon of bakers yeast and one of bicarbonate.

MIX sugar with bicarbonate of soda to a 12:1 ratio and store in in a jar then when its done just use that. Use water of around 30C ,too hot will kill the yeast, too cold and it wont start. Good Luck
