All measurements are per gallon, so multiply by the volume you will be doing to get the amounts needed.
Never use blackstrap molasses!!!
Vegetative Tea (early season growth)
- ¼ cup worm castings or great compost – Our castings are wonderful for this
- 1-2 teaspoons Kelp meal
- Fish Hydrolysate 1.5ml per gal (pre-mix with few cups of water)
Note: Alternate Kelp meal with Alfalfa meal each brewing cycle
What’s Up with the Foam?
The presence of foam on the surface of tea is considered a positive sign, but it just means there are free proteins, amino acids or carbohydrates present. This can occur as the result of adding fish hydrolysate, certain organic acids or carbohydrates. If you don’t get foam that isn’t an indication that the tea hasn’t done what it is supposed to do.
