Question about bubbles per minute

Hey guys, i'm new to planted tanks and i just set up a DIY CO2 pepsi bottle. Its been about 2 days now and i get only 6-7 bubbles each minute. Is this normal? Or should i try a new batch?

it will start out slow usually around day 10 it will be at maximum output . It also depends on how much sugar/yeast you used more sugar will make it last longer more yeast will make more co2 but it will last less time. This is also affected by the room temp. Wait till it really gets going to see. also remember you cant compare diy co2 to a charged system.
