I'm looking for someone with a little bit of biology insight:
I have set up a bokashi bucketcomposting system, where I take the liquid that comes out of it every 2nd day, and dilute it 1 to 100 (altho I think it can go to 1 to 1000?). And I water my plants with that -- in a non-aquaponic system to be honest (couldn't find a more fitting Forumtopic).
And my question is it would work to take this liquid, which comes from anaerobic bacteria, and put it in a barrel with water, and some sugar for the microbes to multiply them --normally with regular compost together with an air pump for 24-48 hours right, but seeing how these came from anaerobic bacteria -- idk??
I’m new to bokashi, but my research says there shouldn’t be much leachate. I’m adding fairly dry materials, but the process in and of itself will create a bit of leachate. You need to be VERY careful with this anaerobic material. You have anaerobic bacteria and you’re feeding them to multiply. I wouldn’t do that. Probably the best thing to do would be to thinly spread it onto a compost heap “reserve” that will become part of the brown for your next thermophilic pile. Anaerobes are disease generators, and that includes human pathogens. The only way to know if you’ve converted to all aerobic bacteria is to use a microscope, and then you need to know what you’re looking at. Two days ago we were consulting on a farm and found our very first spirilla… OUCH! You don’t ever want to see these critters in your compost.
IF You’re going to feed, then use only a TINY (even less than that) bit of unsulphured blackstrap molasses.

the pain of discipline, or the pain of regret!
What does a metric clock look like? I bet it is nothing like this tiny ad:
