How long does it take to start bubling I've had mine in for about 2 hours and it hasn't started

It may also depend on the temperature of your yeast solution. You could get no CO2 bubbles if it's too cold. My DIY CO2 stops bubbling at night then happily starts again in the daytime when it's warmer.

Unless your house is as cold as mine (18 C throughout most of the day), you should still get some CO2 production. I still get a few bubbles even though my house drops to almost freezing cold conditions in the early morning
