I don't know about that.  I have been having good luck. Although
it did take quite a few tries.  For me this works best:
11/2 cups sugar, about 5-6 cups of water. {almost hot} shake,
add baking powder, shake, then add only *1/2 tsp* yeast. don't
shake. I get about 3-4 weeks of  use. Hope this helps
