    I usually just use the worm castings as a top dressing as they act like a slow release fertilizer. Are you going to brew your tea using an air bubbler? I'm assuming yes, as you're adding molasses which is usually added as a food source for the microorganisms.

    what about ratios for making a pure earthworm casting tea mix
    i have read 1/3 is that right??

    and the bat guano tea ratio
    in the past i have used about two cups of guano for a 5 gallon bucket

    i have read that putting citric acid in in you aerobic tea will preserve 2% of the mcrobes,
    anybody know the ratio??

    thanks guys
