Welcome Eric!

I'm curious if you cover any shelf stable tea recipes in your book.  Sometimes I have a window of opportunity to apply something beneficial but don't have the time to brew a fresh compost tea so it would be nice to make up something that I can have on the ready.

Thanks,
Roxane

Hi Roxane,

I do describe an IMO (Indigenous Microorganisms) tea method that has a shelf life of up to six months although after you've done the preparation you don't actually seal it but use an airlock or the kind of semi-permeable cover as shown in the photo.
