@db003 I had the same sort of bubble pattern as you , I found when I went to a bigger pump [ 96 ltr min ] Life seemed to explode and in a shorter time , I make a min of 40 ltr at a time and It seems 24 hours is best , after that I have to add more feed .

only real problem with that sort of tea is they steep instead of actually brew. so youll ideally want to stick a spoon or something in there and swirl it about every few hours if you can. but works alright. just dont get as good a brew since some of the stuff will settle around the edges. Hence the spoon lol
thanks for the tip the tea is doing good so far it started to get a bit of foam now I will give it a swirl

I do want to get a dedicated system for my teas something that I dont have worry about foam or water spilling on my floor I had a bad incident happen a few weeks ago with one of the kids leaving the water running in the sink and it flooded my bathroom and now the whole down stairs bathroom of my neighbors apartment is ruined and we have to come up with the money to fix it

money for new grow stuff is out for a long while sad to say but this will have to work for now I use this bucket to bubble my water mostly since its all I have

so this is what my worm castings/Malibu compost tea looked like after 24 hours of brewing

one pics of when it was still bubbling and one when I was watering I mixed it up a few times

I just started to add AACT teas and seed sprout teas to my whole grow schedule and I have to say I really like it and want to continue doing them

there is not much of a down side to doing them as long as there timed right thanks for all the help

p.s. I made sure to rinse my air stones and airlines since its all I have right now of a little cleaning will help them work longer I want to get a better pump and some pvc to do a air lift style brewer

Mr @Eyes on Fire Ya would be proud of me mate . I got no photos , but I made a tea [ feed ] the other day with horse manure - pig dirt - worm castings - Banana flowers - Bat guano flour - Liquid sea weed - [ Cane toad warts - and Fish lips .Optional extra :biggrin: ] - And I tell ya what a great boast it gave the plants , I now understand what you are on about with teas , I have one word of advice to anyone new getting into it --- Think about what you want --- as in are you feeding the soil or the plant or both . Took me a bit of time to understand , but well worth the time to do it . Mr Eyes , I thank you . :thumbsup:
