    You want to use soil to make a composting tea?
    I would go for a good quality compost or earthworm castings for this.
    It all depends what your tea is for mate.

    Compost or worm shit dude .

    1tblsp of black strap molazses per gal .

    Youll want to use 1l of compost per 4L water . Then dilute to 1/4 for large plantz 1/8 for small plants .

    Give that a good rolling brew for 24hrs

    This from Tim Wilson and the recipe Im gonna use..
    Its worth reading his stuff on his website Microbe Organic

    Through a plethora of trial and error brewing with a dissolved oxygen meter at hand we determined that a pretty reliable volume of [vermi]compost to use is 2.38% by volume of water used up to around a 250 gallon brewer.

    So if you have 5 gallons you multiply that by 2.38% to get the amount of [vermi]compost to use. Then you can go to a converter and convert it into any unit of measure which is convenient. In my opinion measuring [vermi]compost by weight is inaccurate because of varying moisture content.

    Anyway to proceed we have;

    5 x 2.38% = 0.119 of a gallon = 0.476 of a quart = 0.450 of a liter
    = 450.5 milliliters [450 rounded] = 1.904 cups [2 cups rounded] - Your choice

    Likewise with the use of black strap molasses, a percentage of 0.50% is a good median amount to use.

    You really need to brew it for 36 to 42 hours to get the desired result but if you mix in some wheat bran at 1:30 to to the worm castings, then moisten with a weak molasses solution and cover with a damp cloth 24 hours prior to brewing you can achieve desired microbe levels in 24 hours.

    Again credit to Tim Wilson, all organic grower need to read his work man. Hes tested this shit under microscope mate

    Unfortunately no I don't mate, I gave off of all social media a few years ago. Id love to chat to Tad Hussey man, his podcasts are probably my favourite.
