You can create a rich microbial tea in just 24 hours. You can use compost, worm castings, or manure to create your own Compost Tea. The critical operation for creating good and safe teas is the aeration of the mix. The 10 gallon Compost Tea Maker uses fine bubble diffusion with more than 4,000 1mm perforations. Designed with industrial grade components, this unit will be good for use in small nurseries, hydroponic facilities and home gardens for years to come. These fine bubble discs ensure an optimum dispersion and distribution of oxygen throughout the mix. The oxygen stimulates the growth of good microbes while hindering bad microbial development. The Compost Tea Catalyst will further boost the production of the good microbes. The Catalyst contains seaweed extract, humic acid and mineral powder. The Compost Tea Catalyst is OMRI (Organic Materials Review Institute) listed. This Compost Catalyst can be used in any Compost Tea Brewing System.
In preparation for making your Compost Tea, it is best to dechlorinate your water. Rain water may also be an option. The chlorine is detrimental to the production of good microbes for your Compost Tea.
