Prepare the Brewer Bucket:
Take the local repurposed brewer bucket provided in the kit. Insert the PawFly pump hose through the top lid of the bucket.
Attach the stone to the end of the hose inside the bucket. This will help aerate the water during the brewing process.

Fill the Bucket with Water:
Fill the bucket with 2 gallons of water. Ensure that the water is either de-chlorinated or has been sitting for 24 hours or more to remove chlorine. Using rain barrel water is ideal for this purpose.
Add the Compost Tea Brewer Bag:

Take the Light of the Soil Worm Compost Tea Brewer Bag, which contains worm castings and aged compost from local food and landscape waste.
Drop the bag into the water-filled bucket. Make sure the bag is fully submerged.

Brew the Compost Tea:
Allow the mixture to brew for 24 to 48 hours. During this time, the beneficial microbes from the worm castings and compost will multiply in the water, creating a nutrient-rich compost tea.
Using the Compost Tea:
After brewing, use the compost tea within 24 to 48 hours for the best results.
Apply the compost tea to your soil as a natural fertilizer. It can be used for watering plants or as a foliar spray.

Odor: The compost tea should have an earthy smell, similar to soil. A hint of sweet and sour sauce odor is normal and indicates the presence of beneficial microbes.
Dilution: The 2 gallons of compost tea can be diluted to make up to 8 gallons of compost tea for your soil. This will extend the usage of your compost tea while still providing beneficial nutrients to your plants.


Always handle the compost tea and its ingredients with care. Avoid contact with eyes and skin, and wash hands thoroughly after handling.
Store the brewing kit and its components in a cool, dry place when not in use.
