I have tried urea in the recipe instead of ammonium sulfate. It works! Lot's more CO2 production... although naturally the mix does not last as long...
I guess you could vary the formula to get the desired amount of CO2 production. Need to experiment a little since the output is dependent on many factors such as ambient temperature, amount of yeast, type of yeast etc.
