What are your thoughts on how long compost tea can be stored? I made a batch last night, thinking my plants would be ready for it, but they could go another day or two before watering. I'm thinking if I keep bubbling it it should last 2-3 days. It's not straight compost, it's a mix of roots organics nutrients so im not all that worried about salmonella. It doesn't smell at all. What are you thoughts or experiences?

i prefer to use it within 24 hours of being ready. if you keep aerating and aren't seeing foam, add a bit more molasses to get the goodies metabolizing again. should be fine for up to three days i'd think before going completely anaerobic.
