Can you suggest some resources for learning to evaluate compost tea?
Books, dvds, videos, online classes, anything..?

Basically I read the The compost tea brewing manual by Elaine Ingham, the Teaming with Microbes: A Gardener's Guide to the Soil Food Web, the Compost tea making by Marc Remillard, I saw the Soil movie with Geoff Lawton, etc.
My wish is to reach the next level and be able to evaluate the quality of my compost tea. I own a decent microscope and saw Tim Wilson's DVDs (http://microbeorganics.com/index.html#My_DVD). I need more knowledge.. : )
Thanks!
