I couldn't help correcting this advice. Definately don't use HOT water --
just luke warm and the tried and true mix is:
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon yeast
1 teaspoon baking soda
6 cups luke warm water.

All the rest is the same. This mixture, if well sealed, will last for about
3-4 weeks.

in Vancouver where it is warm and sunny.
