I purchased a small 3gal compost tea bubbler/brewer. Very interested in the benefits of compost tea and living organic soil. After assembling the brewer, I realized it did not come with a mesh brew bag. So I made one.

I used some left over silk screen mesh from a DIY dry sift screen. Stitched together with some fishing line. An old piece of nylon rope to create a drawstring. The mesh was about 14" x 14". The pictures give an idea. If anybody interested I could give some simple instructions. Ingenuity and imagination. Peace farmers.

So who's got tea recipes? Wondering if there's something I can brew with high P bat guano. Maybe use some manure and hummus mix, molasses, add mykos to tea? Need some good links/literature suggestions.

I'm shooting for a small personal perpetual grow. As sustainable as possible. It's a work in progress. Composting all veg matter indoors and recycling material used in the "reusable" mesh bag. Hopefully, I can appreciate the simplicity of the pantyhose it doesn't suit my needs. KaPow!!!
As far as looking for info on my own, I do. I have found that there's mountains of unuseful and overly jibber jabbered threads. I've gained some knowledge on my own, but still attempt to get sound advice and direct links to threads or suggested outside sources from some experienced growers. Kind of the process in a social online forum environment. Lots of farmers have been great. A few, not so much.
I've realized there's a few circles around the farm that are a bit tight. Whatever. Also have realized why I've read a number of complaints about the petty shit on the farm. Subsequently resulting in ego fueled rants and banning of subscribers.

Don't throw so much dynamite around. It erodes a solid foundation. (Desending whistle of an I coming bomb......) KABOOM!!! goes the useless sarcasm.
 
How long do you steep for? I'm pretty confident I got ahead of myself by starting a tea weeks before I am going to need it, and I mean weeeeeeks. Its been in the 5 gal jug bubbling for a few days, but man it does not smell good at all. From some other reading it looks as though this batch is ruined and I should not have it sitting on the side lines for extended period of time?

Ingenuity and as my bompi used to say "Yankee genuity" have shown me some of the absolute finest ways to cut out the stress of overthinking during problem solving! I like folks who add on to existing products to make them better and more user friendly man great stuff!

Maybe give them a gander


  • On-site composting systems.
  • FPJ, KNF, IMO.
  • Biochar
  • I have a few recipes for teas but honestly u sound very intelligent and humble......id prob stick with basic n-p-k recipes. I'm currently trying to turn my old putter up so I can grab those recipes to paste here for ya. I tried fish hydrosylates as well as these teas have have a WONDERFUL overall effect.
