Simply do a good cleaning up and removal of as much algae as you can followed by a large 50-70% water change. After the water change, dose 1/8 tsp of KNO3 back into the tank followed by a 3-5 day blackout depending on the seriousness of the BGA. Once the blackout is over, do a large water change again and then dose back all the nutrients especially the KNO3. Make sure it does not get bottom out again. DIY CO2 is a PITA if you ask me. It takes a lot of work to keep up with things especially with high light (Constant changing of brew to keep up the CO2). Drop the lights down to 2W/G would give you more room for error if things go sour. Hope that helps... :)
