Compost tea is a concentrated organic fertilizer, brewed by mixing biologically active compost with aerated water. Compost itself has a number of known benefits, such as the ability to fight pathogens and pests found in soil, while acting as an extremely effective source of nutrients for plants. Compost tea also has the added benefit of enhancing the soil, which leads to healthier and higher yielding plants in the future.
What is a compost tea brewer?
In order to turn your compost into a usable fertilizer, you need to brew it into a tea. Using one of the brewers we offer here at Hydrobuilder makes this a breeze. Mixing one volume of compost with several volumes of water in the brewer makes for a properly concentrated tea, which will be suitable for spraying on the plant or putting directly into the soil.
For those uninterested in brewing their own tea, we offer pre-brewed compost tea!
