    Awesome kit!

    The filter bags, bubbling tubes, it all fits perfectly and comes with a ton of detailed info to make you feel like an expert in the subject. One important note, I'd recommend purchasing steel cut oats or bran, insect frass, bat guano and humic acid, to play around with and prep your own compost/forest humus/earthworm castings at home. The only bottleneck now having the time and strength to spray all this stuff!

    Sturdy & simple - works great!

    I bought a 5-gal brewer for my first go at making compost tea. I was really impressed with the quality of the workmanship and all of the ingredients that came with the kit. Within 15 minutes of unpacking it, I was bubblin' my first batch of tea! It didn't overflow, and was surprisingly quiet- kind of soothing! The ingredients in the kit should last all year if not longer for your average gardener/homesteader.
