First of all, 3/4 what, cups?

Second of all, was it straight tap water or aged aqaurium water? If you use tap water it may not work because the chlorine in the tap water could inhibit the yeast.

Lastly, depending on the size of container and how much mixture there is, it's not a bad idea to add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. The yeast likes the pH this creates.

DId you add 2 cups of each? You need to clarify. Two cups of yeast is way too much for that mixture.
