Compost Tea

Been researching this topic.... anyone have any experience brewing some of this "high octane" stuff?

Re: Compost Tea

I sometimes fill a bucket with rabbit manure and water then water the plants. Just gotta be careful the manure isn't too "hot' or it burns them.

Re: Compost Tea

ya its pretty simple. i have a big plastic barrel that i fill about half way up with last seasons compost and then the rest with water. i leave the top off and just let the rain keep it filled. i dip it out and put around my freshly planted veg's every week or so. it kind of stinks and looks nasty but seems to do pretty well.

Re: Compost Tea

Thanks guys. I did some more research and decided to give it a try. I have 15 gallons brewing right now. used a fish tank air pump with 4 hoses and added molasses to the water.
