Yeast + sugar water = CO2 -- How to?

I was just reading an article that mentioned a woman using yeast and sugar-water to provide CO2 for her plants. Does anyone know how to do this, how much to add, or what the recipe is? I find it quite interesting.

Not sure but its funny because during my time in Saudi Arabia, we were using a bag of yeast, a bag of sugar and mixing that all in a bath tub full of water and letting it ferment for a week. Afterwards we would pressure cook that mixture and filter the evaporated stuff - and that was what we called Sadiqui - a very potent drink that could make you go blind if you drink too much.

The mixture in the tub had a strong smell which does not go away easily (stayed at my house for about 4 or 5 months before it totally disappeared).

Legend has it that a Canadian was the one who started it all. LOL
