5 Gallon Brew Recipe:

Begin with a pre-treatment of your humus or compost. 

1. Take ½ pound of compost and spread it out in a plastic container. 
2. Lightly mix 1 oz. Soil ReVive with just enough water to make the compost moist but not wet. 
3. Once they are lightly mixed, cover mixture with a lid that has holes in it for air movement. 
4. Store for 48-72 hours in a dark indoor place. 
5. After 48 hours you should see white fuzz sitting on top of the compost; this is beneficial fungi.
6. Scoop the treated compost into the brewing bag and zip the bag shut.  Then, follow the brewing steps as outlined in the manual that came with your DS5 to brew your tea.

7. After 24 hours, the tea is ready for application.
