Their turbo model is just like Hagens but they use a powerhead instead of a ladder

I just finished my free Month that came with it. I just research and came up with This
1 Cup of Sugar ( I used C&H Pure Cane organic sugar)
1/4 TSP of Yeast (RedStar Active Dry Yeast)
1/8 TSP of Baking Soda (ArminHammer)
4 cups of water warm.

This is my first try at this and may not work so take at will.
I put one cup warm tap water in jar and one cup of sugar and mixed well and then added one more cup of water. the mixed well. then added baking soda slightly mixed. then put in canister. Then I added 2 cups of water and let it sit for a few min. Then added yeast and shook for 2-3 min. Let sit for 3-5 min then hooked it up. I just did this so I have to wait and see. From what I read warm water was to disolve sugar and that warm water kills the yeast. That is why I let it sit for a few min.

Like I said this may not work but from what I have read on here it should do ok.

Let me know if you find a better recipe
