Anybody Tried Freezing Compost Tea

I understand you have to use the freshly compost tea after 48hrs after brewing unless you put it in the fridge to prolong the life of the microbilia for about 7-10 days lifespan. My question is, has anybody actually tried freezing it then thaw it on their next use. I think its practical n surely willwork but has not execute it yet and was wondering if anybody in the community have tried this yet.

But then again, the freezing temp might kill off the bennies..

Would it not be the same as a field freezing and then starting seeds in it after frost. The micro life becomes dormant,but I wouldn't think it would kill them.
The death might start happening upon heating back up,that would need to take time at room temp to thaw out I would think. Not being double boiled or anything like that. That would be to much heat at once.
But let see if Capps answers this.
Interesting it is. Good ?

Definitely wouldnt be as good?It works in nature?Lik str8 says high heat would sterilize and kill but im not sure about freezings effect.
Trust me on this,I'm no scientist but there's no way there's gonna be as much microbial life in it after freezing and thawing out.you want it fresh off the bubble.just my ten pence worth.

Fresh is best after a 36-48hr brew. It can be refrigerated for 7-10 days after that.

Freezing it would eliminate the beneficial factor.

It may but not positive if that would cause any nutrient precipitation or molecular damage. I think it would be okay to do if you must. Just make sure to put fresh dissolved oxygen back in.

If you only have a small amount of water to use you could chill your water in there to simulate fall conditions.

Sweet, there's life even in ice and "workers" to assist in the harsh conditions. Amazing! Always had that faith in mother nature. lol

So any new info in freezing compost tea? I want to make small portions to thaw out and use every other week. Making teas stinks a lot, so I don't want to be brewing it every other week and only need a little bit. It will have other amendments added so its not just microbes but fertilizer as well.

I will assume (guess) that the aerobic bacteria will die when frozen and deprived of oxygen.
