how many PSI?

I'm looking at a atomizer diffuser for my first planted tank. I plan to use it with a diy yeast bottle setup and it takes 28 psi for it to work properly. I have a big tank so im going to use 4 1 gallon jugs. how much psi do 2 1 gallon jugs each with 2 cups sugar and a tsp of whine making yeast create?

If you are looking at UpAqua atomizer, it needs 35+ psi.

I tried using a 1 gallon DIY setup with a spiral glass diffuser and It didn't generate nearly enough pressure to work. I just opted to save up and go ahead and get pressurized.
