much better "tricks" than baking soda in your DIY mix are;
-add jello mix to sugar, then keep in fridge overnight to jell.
add yeast with a bit of water, then hook up to your tank.
jello prevents the yeast from getting at all the sugar too quickly,
so you get a more even amount of Co2 over a longer period.
-instead of grocery store baking yeast, use brewers yeast.
various brewers yeast will keep generating Co2 at double the
alcohol toxicity that normal baking yeast can survive, thus
it will generate Co2 about 33% longer than normal yeast.
