I am using about 2/3 cup of sugar, a teaspoon of yeast, and the water filled about 4/5 or so in the bottle.
Totally agree w/Tank girl, waaay more sugar. The yeast needs food! The baking soda(bicarbonate) is to stabilize the ph of your mixture in the bottle, keeping the ph high enough to keep the yeast alive untill all sugar is consumed. without the bicarb., the mix would get too acidic for the yeast to stay active, before all the sugar is consumed.
