Just wanted to let you know Harris Seeds has a compost tea brewer on sale. Sounds like a good deal to me.

FYI, things to look for in a compost tea brewer:

1. Does it provide a minimum of .05-.08 cfm/gal of water with the air pump?

2. Can it maintain 6 mg/l of dissolved oxygen for the entire brewing cycle?

3. Is it easy to clean?

4. Any direct microscopy or lab testing to support it's efficacy?

Without the answers to those questions, it's just a bucket of brown water and you have no idea what sort of microbial activity or biomass is in the tea itself.

Hope that helps,
Tad

PS: I'm not commenting as to the quality of this particular system, as I haven't tested it, but rather just what I would look for in buying one.
