Question DIY Co2 - How much do i need for my 15g

Hey all, i'm going to be starting a DIY Co2 system in a couple of days.

My tank

Size: 15g
Fish: 10 Neon Tetra, 2 Honey Gourami, 3 Corydoros Catfish, 2 Gold rams (not permanent)
Plants: Amazon swords, dwarf sag, java fern, java moss, Pygmy chain swords
Filter: Fluval U2

I have a few questions...

How much Co2 will i need?
How much Yeast and sugar will i need?
I don't have any chopsticks laying about, what could i use as a diffuser?

Thanks for any help!

I'll throw this one out there for ya:

DIY CO2 Made Easy

In short....

1 bottle should be fine on a 15g.

If you can't find a chopstick at a chinese restraunt or such, a clean unused cigarette filter from a tobacco store (not from a pack of smokes) will work just fine too.
