    Default First compost tea recipe

    As the tittle says am atarting my first compost tea recipe and was wanting a little bit of input from others.

    Doing a 22 litre brew using worm compost thinking about 4 cups
    Biobizz alg a mic
    Biobizz fish mix

    Am unsure of the amounts of the fishmix and alg a mic. Biobizz website says 2ml per litre for both which seems alot too me. Read some 5 gallon recipes that use about a tablespoon of liquid fertiliser but where using black strap molasses aswell i dont have any for this run.

    So should I use a much smaller amount or stick to what there saying? Thanks in advance

    I would only put about a cup of compost mate and try and bubble it with a air stone for at least 24 hours I would put about a 1/; cup molasses when you get it but the amounts of nutrients sounds ok really

    Right been bubbling away for about 40 hours now at about 22 c. Looks a nice coffee colour not massive amounts of foam as it dissapates away when wipi g fown the slime round the bucket.

    Got some molasses today same situation though with recipes says only use a teaspoon per gallon? Should a just use 1/4 of a cup of molasses and keep all the other ingredients the same Red?
