I've been lurking permies for some time and I'm finally on a farm where I get to actually do stuff. Great site, love the work, and thanks for all the advice I haven't said thank you for before. That said...
A.) I searched for "compost tea" and found a couple of threads, but not nearly as many as I expected. This one
was helpful. Am I missing something when I conduct a search? I would assume there are more than two threads dedicated to compost tea on this site.
B.) The real problem that brought me here: I've read manuals, watched several videos, and read several different opinions (mostly the "don't use a f***ing aquarium pump and a five gallon bucket!" vs. the "you can produce a high number of beneficial microbes with just a five gallon bust and..." debate). I'm a novice so I just want to go with the five gallon bucket method for starts. Can I do a five gallon bucket, two air stones, two air pumps, good compost (if I read, "your compost tea is only as good as your compost" one more time : ), and rock it out for 24-36 hr?
c.) It's probable this has been addressed numerous times, so please feel free to link me to that thread and we can delete this guy. Cheers and thanks for any help.
