OK, I'm finally going to be joining the ranks of ACT brewers !
Here's my brewer:
--A clean 5 gal. bucket
--A whisper 15-30 aquarium pump
--A length of air hose (obviously )
--A 10in. air stone.
Now, the air stone is only like 1in. wide, but is 10 in. long. Basically, it lays across the entire diameter of the bucket when laid on the bottom.
For the actual brewing, I'm going to have about 1 gal. of water in the bucket, which will fill the bucket about 2 1/2 in.
To this water, I'm going to add about 1 cup of compost, which is really dirt that's had organic matter added to it over time.
I'll lay the stone across the bottom of the bucket and let it brew 24 hours, after which I will promptly apply it to the garden.
So......What do you all think? Is the stone too big? Should I add more water, like 2 gal. since there will probably be a lot of bubbles (can you have too many)? Is my compost too low quality (though I am sure microbes are present, since there has been decomposition)?
Oh, and I'm not even going to go there about my pump size .
No one has to answer all these questions, I just threw them out as some possible suggestions. Thanks, all, for your great advice.
