Hi, I went on a garden tour and saw a lady brewing compost tea and I just thought "what a chore!". It could and maybe should be a lot easier. So my compost bin has a collection area under so that the juice gets collected. I use an airlift pump in a bucket to pump the compost tea back up so that it drips through the compost again and again. So hopefully the compost rots faster and the tea is stronger too. Check it out. I have only used it a couple of weeks and I already see a difference in my plants. Brian.
