HOW TO MAKE WORM TEA – CHEAP & EASY
- 5-7 gallon bucket
- Stick to go across top of bucket
- Aquarium pump (double tube) with two bubbler stones
- 6 steel nuts to weight bubbler stones
- Pantyhose stocking (12” foot end piece)
- 2 cups worm castings (poop)
- Large yogurt container with both ends cut out
- Molasses (unsulfured)
Fill bucket with water (untreated – no chlorine)
Put both stones/tubes (with steel nuts on the ends for weight) in bucket
Turn on pump
Add 2 tablespoons of unsulfured molasses and STIR until dissolved
Put pantyhose over yogurt container (acts as a funnel to make it easier to put in worm castings)
Add 2 cups worm castings in pantyhose
Tie pantyhose to center of stick and place over bucket with stocking hanging in center of bucket in the water
When the stocking (full of WORM CASTINGS) is submerged, squeeze it a few times to release/mush the water through the stocking. I do this several times during the brewing.
Brew for 24 hours
After 24 hours your WORM TEA is ready to use. It must be used within 3 hours to get the benefits of all the micro organisms. If your brew is really dark in color, you might need to add some water. When using this on your plants, you want it to look like a WEAK TEA color…not dark.
Clean all supplies with hot water & soap. Rinse clean and let dry.
