Boogie Brew Pro Compost Tea Making Kit
Make the switch from petroleum-based fertilizers to all-organic compost tea and facilitate biology in your garden soil instead of smothering it! The Boogie Brew Pro Compost Tea Making Kit includes everything you need to start brewing like a pro, from the microbes and their food source to the brewing vessel and aeration hardware. Brews 100 gallons of compost tea.
Aside from compost tea brewing, many of the fertilizers included in the Boogie Brew Pro Compost Tea Making Kit can be used as stand-alone soil amendments or foliar sprays. See the Specifications tab for a full list of ingredients and suitable applications.
*Note: Chlorine is very bad for microbial life (that's why municipal drinking water and swimming pools are treated with it). When brewing compost tea, it's important to use chlorine-free water so the composting microbes can survive and thrive. Then after the tea has been applied to your garden soil, it's important to water your garden with chlorine-free water so you don't damage all the microbial life you just infused into it. We recommend using an inline hose filter (available separately above) to keep chlorine out of your gardening and composting operation, especially if you use city water. The Basic filter above can be used alone or as a pre-filter for the more advanced Classic and Plus+ models.
