Or pop into supermarket and buy a bunch, save on the airfair, unless your using free air-miles, whatever they are i just don`t know, but i like owt for free.


And don`t forget about the gator or snake bite risk in Florida. Supermarkets all the way mate lol. :D

I think the majority of it being recommended is from grow stores wanting your money, they make you think you need it for a decent crop. I can see simple sugars feeding the carbs but a little goes a long way. Less is more.

I've been thinking about using beer. :beer:

It has carbs....my soils nute base already have pulverized hops flowers in there. Seems like it might be a helluva compost tea and would cause a microbial kegger party.

Gotta few males I could test it on right now. I'm guessing a 12oz IPA to 10 gallons of water sounds good :D

I agree with no1, a lot of the 76 recommended bottles you can throw them away, you will notice no difference


and the beer... yes guilty on that one, I have used it in compost tea before I knew much about them. Seemed to do nothing bad... dunno if it did anything good either :lol: think I was after it for the enzymes at the time, i find the malted barley tea on it's own to be rocket fuel though (you heard me harp on about that one for years I am sure), so beer tea is not too far off anyway


hard to quantify what is good or bad in terms of compost tea I find, I just look with a microscope to see that it is alive and moving, if a lot is moving and I can also see threads in it (fungus), I call it a successful recipe. I have no idea what exact microbes I am looking at though, above my paygrade


sorry to go so off the topic of flushing with molasses Afton and fellas
