Compost Tea
as easy as
1 2 3

compost added to pail   Add your finished compost and make sure the ends of the hoses are covered.
water added to pail   Add the water, filling the bucket to within 6 inches of the top. (If you are using water from a public water source, run the pump and bubble air through the water for at least an hour before adding the water to the compost. This allows any chlorine to evaporate. Chlorine can kill beneficial organisms in the tea.)
molases poured into pail   Add 1 once of unsulfured molasses to provide a food source for the beneficial microorganisms.
air bubbling through mixture   Turn on the aquarium pump and let the mixture brew for 2-3 days. Stir the brew occasionally to help mix the compost and separate the microorganisms from the solid compost particles.
