I've found that using a whole packet of yeast will consume the sugar more
quickly. The result is that CO2 production doesn't continue as long.

I get 4-5 weeks worth of CO2 from a 1/2 teaspoon of yeast (6 cups water, 2
cups sugar). If you're getting the same from an entire packet of yeast,
then it's certainly worth cutting back to 1/2 a teaspoon.
