In the ten years since we have been actively working an organic veggie garden, we have never seen more lush and bountiful growth and more healthy and productive plants. In a prior post we talked about Compost Tea – what, why, how and the fact that since we used so much – 50 gallons a week – it can become costly to purchase as much as we need, so we built our own!
We have talked about Actively Aerated Compost Tea (AACT) being the most beneficial compost tea, so these Compost Tea Brewer Plans are specific to producing AACT.
All AACT brewers have the same fundamental elements:
- Container/vessel to hold the liquid/tea – with bulkhead fitting and spigot to dispense
- Air pump and tubing/frame to introduce and diffuse oxygen through the solution
- Nutrients to feed the microorganisms and enable reproduction
