How long do you aerate compost tea?
Once the compost is added to water and brewed, it needs to aerate. This is important to introduce oxygen into the mix, which will help our soil. We recommend you allow your compost tea to bubble for one day, and stir a few times throughout the day if possible, to prevent settling.
