Quite often we get asked about compost tea and what ingredients work the best. Our best answer to this question is it depends on how you are brewing and what you would like the results of the compost tea to be.
There is truly only one way that you will know exactly what is being produced in your compost tea and that is to use a microscope. If one does a search on the internet about looking at microscopic life with a microscope a number of links to videos on various sites should be listed in your search results.
A great website to learn all about compost tea, how to make it, what to look for in the tea and inexpensive compost tea brewers is a site by Tim Wilson. The link is here: http://www.microbeorganics.com/.
