Batch brewing is traditionally used by growers as a means of producing living compost tea and makes the most sense if the intention is to use the entire brew and do it again next week. But for garden centers and nurseries who consistently use compost tea and may not know how much is needed on a daily basis, it makes things difficult by having to coordinate and schedule a compost tea pick up day, clean the unit weekly, refrigerate leftovers, etc. No more!
The implosion and supersaturation of dissolved oxygen (DO) accomplished by the Microbe Maker creates ideal conditions where microbial life thrives. The Microbe Maker can be used for batch brewing weekly, but the unique environment of the Microbe Maker allows Dealers or intentioned Growers to take advantage of "perpetual brewing" that provides living, beyond organic compost tea on demand 24/7. We pioneered this approach more than a decade ago and have been doing it with Growers and Dealers ever since with amazing results.
Perpetual brewing is against conventional wisdom when brewing compost tea, but then again, basically the entire realm of microbes is not conducive to conventional wisdom. Estimates say we know only 5% of bacteria and 10% of fungi based on the rate of discovery. And very little definitive research has been done on the merits of brewing techniques.

Our approach is based off of many years of experience both in our own growing operations and farms, and the many Dealers we have worked with over time. Evidence for a proper biological approach to growing is based on the results of the plants grown and the costs saved. And there is no doubt that living soil grows healthier plants and saves money. Read our Testimonial Page for feedback from Dealers and Growers who have experienced the power of our products and systems.
If you use compost tea weekly and know the volume required then you should batch brew, but if you use compost tea daily or cannot control the amount of compost tea distributed daily then perpetual brewing is the way to go. With perpetual brewing and replacing the ingredients that are distributed over time the compost tea solution is neither concentrated or diluted over time, providing a consistent living solution for your customers or garden.
