Make sure you have no leaks. ive done it twice now and both times im producing co2 within 45 minutes, but the first time i had a leak and it took me like 3 hours to figure this out. but once i got this fixed it worked perfectly. Also heating the water might be your problem. I got my water pretty warm when i put it in there.
I mix it in small amounts though. I get all my stuff together. i mix the baking soda, yeast and sugar together, then i put about a third of it in there. fill it up with twice that amout of water and shake very well, then put in half of whats left. fill about half way, then mix very well. Then finally the last bit of dry stuff, then i fill the water to the begining of were the bend starts in the 2 liter.
It is important though that your water is warm, i dont even know if the yeast will generate without warm water. mine is just slightly warm to the touch.
Hope this helped. Pm me on how it works out for ya.
