My question is could I keep the same ratios and just bump up the mixture to get a longer production time?

Just weird I haven't seen or heard about somebody doing that so I figured there has to bs a reason.

But to answer your question you would think so but no. Also I have found you need very little water on the baking soda side. Just enough to cover the powder.
Also watch which system you get. The one with the fixed bar connecting the bottles seems to have less problems.
