Sorry SBH, you're prolly not gonna get that thing to bubble with the wimpy pressure that a yeast generator will provide unless you can find a way to prevent your seal from breaking. Even then your bottle (unless it's glass) will break before you have enough pressure
Don't believe me? Just blow air into the hose that feeds into the diffuser and try to make it bubble. Good luck
That device makes such tiny bubbles because the pores in the sintered glass are very tiny. It was meant to be used with pressurised set-up.
For a similar effect that will work with your DIY set-up, try one of those wooden air stones the reef guys use for the skimmers. They're a little pricey, but it should get the job done in a similar fashion.
Can I ask why you're not using the intake of your filter/powerhead to diffuse the gas?
