    Yeah bleach is some nasty stuff. So the tea could potentially be shot than ah?

    Bust as long as there's a healthy amount of foam on the top I'm good right? Also thank you for your help I appreciate you

    Nope. Foam isn’t a sign of a good tea, just a sign of surfactants.

    After rinsing the bag a lot more and getting rid of the smell almost completely I've brewed another. Best indication without a microscope is smell to deem if its good or not correct? Thanks

    Hey what size air pump is used for a 5 gallon bucket brewer should I get a 951 GPM or would around 500 GPM be sufficient?

    If it is only for brewing the tea just a small pump from a local pet supply or wally world should do.

    Less than $10 and you would be good to go.

    Here is a 300 gallon recipe I use for veg tea. I also phase it back for smaller brewers.

    Ph water to 7
    2 shovels digested manure
    20c compost local
    8c worm castings
    8c arctic humus
    8c diatomic humate
    2c seaweed (powdered)
    2c neem seed meal
    1c feather meal
    4c PBP veg (or some other broad based, organic veg fert)
    2 tbls Superthrive
    4-6c fish emulsion liq.
    2c micorhizae

    Brew w/active aeration for no more than 24hrs

    I foliar a some then dump and water in the tea once a week.

    I got a question. Down To Earth’s organic ALL PURPOSE..... the company says you can’t steep it in a Tea AND that nearly all of it is insoluble.
    Last night I put 1tbls in a gallon of water the ppm was 169 this morning it was almost 400ppm. Anyone have insight?

    Well anyway I checked the PPM again 24hrs later and it was 709. It smelled like poison BUT my girls loved it

    Most of what I use is made by DTE but there's better out there. My girls still love it and top watering sprouts my clover

    I’ve covered the tops of my soil with sand to ward off fungus gnats. So top dressings isn’t an option. Have you noticed the smell of poison I’m speaki of @SCJedi ?

    No I didn’t. I emailed DTE and one of their reps said that the DTE line of solid organics could not be used to brew teas and he of course pointed me in the direction of their liquid nutrients line.
    So I placed a tbls of their ALL PURPOSE meal into a gallon of water. It seemed to work, i’m just always skeptical when people suggest I buy something else . But I must say I like their customer service the rep that emailed me is always quick to respond I don’t think anything he did with malicious

    Unless you are doing KNF FPJ then aerate your teas! You most likely ended up with anaerobic bacteria which stunk and may really be poisonous to your plants.

    AACT, in the title of the thread stands for actively aerated compost teas.

    Did you use neem seed meal?

    I know what, why don't you post what you put in it to stop me from guessing?

    Fermented plant juice FPJ is a product made as part of Korean natural farming. KNF.

    It sounds like you may have some general reading to do. I would recommend Teaming with Microbes
