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?

Marcello Mino: would reverse osmosis water be better than purified since it doesnt contain any trace minerals??

scorpiogirl39: This video was way simpler and easier to understand than most of the others that I've seen. You made a way simpler tea than everybody else I've watched.

gamenode: While I agree that chlorine in the water will kill bacteria; I disagree that using it won't be as effective. Many areas no longer use chlorine for water purification. In Louisville, KY they use a filtration system that makes the water (right out of the Ohio River) some of the cleanest and best tasting in the whole country. Be that as it may, the chlorine molecules will bond and thus be neutralized by any particulate matter in water. They are too few in number to make a difference.

Kenneth Payne: Where do we get air pumps for $1 ? I have looked and not been able to find them at the Dollar Store.

richardesh94: twin bellos pump...plugging 1 outlet will be hard on the nylon/rubber bellos...and will cut your potential output in half...plug one outlet into each end of the stone (dual input?)..anyway just saying.

Mig TheFig: Everytime I water my plants / garden Can I use tea each time? or should I alternate tea, and next time just water ? I do dilute my tea too when I water with it

Ujjwal Gudiseva: Diet supplement companies desperately want as many individuals as possible to give their products a try to demonstrate how good they are at help people lose weight. Well I found a site that will send free test products to your home, its the secret trick to free diet supplements :) You can get them here

Jayatissa Deweddana Gamage: Have you experienced "Lean Body Maximizer"? (Google it) It is a quick way for you to lose weight fast.

Chihuahuaization Amelie: Is there a coupon code for boogie brew kit or filter?

C Anderson: I have heard of some areas that don't allow collecting rainwater. Gray water can be of use to those people,though some effort & cost would be involved to set that up.Even a few galvanized trash cans can collect an amazing amount of water if lined up under a gutterless roof's dripline. Then when rain stops, replace lids to prevent evaporation & mosquitos, dust or debris from getting in. If those cans sit in the sun, the water will be too hot to use without cooling it off to soil temp, at least.

C Anderson: The whole point of rain collection is to capture as much as possible, when it does rain, however much or little that is, reducing their water bill a bit by collecting & using rainwater. Using compost tea is a way of improving soil. If you don't have a garden, room to compost or make tea, maybe you don't need to collect rainwater. Some are helped by seeing how to set up air bubblers to give life to billiions of microorganisms,in a bucket filled with water & compost.

Rob H: FYI, I ripped apart my dual pump and each outlet had its own rubber pump feeding each outlet so all you'll do by plugging up one outlet is stress out the motor. Brew on!

Aaron Burns: I dont have $100 right now Mitch. Which I am guessing more people than you'd think watching this video might be the same. They probably are trying supplement their diets in a healthy way without emptying there wallets at the whole food store. They may also not have rain gutters on their house so it isnt just 100 bucks now is it? Why do you insist that however and whatever is working for you is the best or only way? I agreed with you even, just dont be a gardener snob, there are other choices.

masterbunny5: For those wondering about how often you can use teas. It has been seen that AACTs (actively aerated compost tea, such that is shown here with the airstones) may be used an infinite amount of times without burning or other ill affects. With the AACTs, you're really adding microbial life to the soil when watering rather than just some NPK value. This microbial injection helps fuel the ecosystem within the soil. Any surplus microbes will just become dormant.
