Co2 mix 5 min bubbles

Hi just made a mix it started producing bubbles in 5 minutes

1 cup 100% pure organic cane sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon or activated yeast

I mixed the sugar in hot water
Than added the baking soda then yeast stirred then put top on 5 min later bubbles

People said it takes up 10 hrs for the bubbles to appear why did mine show up so fast is is because I used quality goods?

Or is that a different gas escaping before the co2?

I put one of those electric heat pads on low for about an hour an I got a bubble ever 3 sec. Slows down at night but that's okay since you don't really need co2 while no light is present.

Wrap a hot rag around it or something
