Yeast CO2 doesn't produce enough pressure to use any sort of ceramic diffuser. I had success using a part of a chopstick stuffed into a piece of airline tubing, you could even use a branch you find outside. This or a ladder are the best options for using DIY Co2. The truly best option is going pressurized. Its worth every penny.
