You can't turn off a yeast based solution without risking the bottles exploding (this is bad).

You can set an airpump to run, and this could be just at night but running it 24/7 will also work. Although you will waste 60% of the generated CO2 during the day you will keep the PH and O2 levels more constant.

I worked out a way to regulate yeast based CO2 without risking an explosion but it requires an airpump, PH controller and a solenoid. Bought separately these items are nearly as expensive as a budget pressurised kit from ebay!
