I juice wheatgrass 3-4 times a week. When I rinse the juicer into a sink tub, the water is bright green with bits of foamy pulp in it. If I collect that green water in a sealed 5-gallon bucket, would it become a stinky tea that my small food plot will love in the spring? I'm thinking along the lines of the plant tea people make from nettles or comfrey or liquid seaweed.
If it freezes solid, it will keep. If it stays liquid, any microbes in the batch would consume the available oxygen, leaving an anaerobic environment. It would be stinky and the plants may not respond in the manner you prefer, but may still benefit regardless.
Aerating for an extended period is not fiscally sound. Keeping the stuff fresh aint gonna happen.
Perhaps pouring the mix into a heap of leaves, hay or compost would be an option. You'd get immediate use of the juice, and end up with something the plants will talk about all season.

Sweet, thanks! I live in a cold climate, so keeping the bucket frozen in the shade could work. I can also experiment with the compost. Got lots to play with! Sounds like fresher is better, so I'll even toss some into the houseplants.
Time is mother nature's way of keeping everything from happening at once. And this is a tiny ad:
