They say that you need a pump 200l/min for a 60 l wheelie bin, that sounds a lot to me. Probably I would go for a slightly smaller brewer. Here's a pump in ebay: pump How many litres per minute to size of barrel? What would you look for in a pump (I don't want to buy anything cheap which breaks after a short while)

After I run it I empty the brew into a larger barrel and then fill the brewer with fresh water and use a brush to scrub the inside, then dump that into the barrel so I can get as much of the sediment out of it as possible. I scrub it with a brush and fresh water after I finish with it, and run hydrogen peroxide in it as well just for good measure, but I don't fill it up all the way for the final scrub/cleaning. And I don't use the hydrogen peroxide water with the finished compost tea. The hydrogen peroxide will break down to water and oxygen, or something like that, so I'll use it to water with later. I keep the air pump on until all the water is drained.

That's Dave's Fetid Swamp Water. And plants love it. I simply got tired of bothering with aeration.
