Did this video help you?

marc davies: These dual air pumps actually have two pumps inside. So to max. your output, you could have used a Y connector to have both outlets going into one stone. And the same on the other pump. I have them for the aquarium, and have replaced the plungers inside. I can't wait to try this out in my own garden

drdelta24: Add a little beer or liquor in there:-)

Christina Furlow: How frequently do you need to give compost tea to your plants? Does it depend on the species or type of plant in your garden?

ZebbiBibi: no molasses?

Jacob D: Keep up the videos John!! I have learned so much from your videos and I love the open source theme that you and Josh follow. I feel the shift in consciousness that you and many others are a part of and it is this type of sustainable organic knowledge that we need to keep spreading. Keep making videos and obviously keep growing those greens!!!!!!

Tank Nickles: so rock dust so does lime work?

Nad Kudo: "instead of harnessing the power of science" you know without 'the power of science' you wouldn't even know about all the microbes and fungus you're talking about, right?

"with chemicals" everything you're using is a chemical... from the water to the compost and so on... stop using "chemicals" as if it were poison or somthing...

Daniel Grabstein: why plug up one of the air pump outlets instead of just having a bunch of stones bubbling...

p3tr0l: "... instead of harnessing the power of science..." 

You can use the power of science to understand the power of nature. No reason for them to be separate. 

Prophis: I hear people often recommend brewing for 24-48 hours. Some others have said 36, and you mention 4 hours can do in a pinch. At most, how long could you leave a brew brewing? 3 days, 5 days? Is there a "window" , or could you keep a perpetual brew?

Eugin Kim: Hello everyone! I've read that vermicompost leachate is anaerobic and can contain many harmful pathogens. I brew Actively Aerated compost Tea every week for our garden and use our vermicompost as the base. Do you think the leachate could be used in the A.A.C.T? I'm hoping the oxygen will kill off the anaerobic microbes. What do you think?

Kemal Whyte: Did Sitch ever get adopted?

dale seiberling: Kinda late. But if you get a dual outlet air pump, do not block one of the outlets!!.. Dual outlet air pumps have 2 diaphragms inside. 1 for each outlet. By blocking a outlet, your actually cutting down airflow out the one you leave open. Use line and airstone from both outlets.. In this video, he should of just used 4 lines and 4 airstones.. Rest of video, great job!!!

Marcy RP: Came back to watch this again..... the archive of info!  I know you're busy and may not answer, but just wondered.....whatever happened to Stitch?  I hope you kept him.

Rick Starr: yo Johnny! pissing in the wind by plugging those pump outlets. Thanks for all the info and great energy! 

Tara Mack: @Multiplayer thanks!! That link was extremely informative.

Gardening Tips With Phil: Some fantastic tips you have in this video, Thanks John.

yes350yes: What you are doing is pretty useless you dont have near enough bubbling action going to shake loose and multply the microbes. I suggest a stronger bubbler for anyone wanting to get any good out of this process.

Kip Traster: John can you please tell me why we need the strainer bag for the compost. Why can't we simply place the compost in the water? What do you do with the compost when you are finished brewing? 

Guanyu Chu: Can I use regular tea or just throw tea leaves into the garden?
