Hello @Jamminbear !I don;t think there is any brand that sells compost teas ( unless you mean bacteria products like tarantula from AN ) but even if you know any i would advise not to buy it. Compost teas need to applied fresh. There are plenty recipes online . What you need to take care is to give the right amount of air when you make it. The rule of thumb is 1-2 liters of air per minute for every liter of tea that you are going to make. So if you want to make 4 liters of tea you should use an air pump with 4-8 L/min. After i brew my tea i dilute it 3 times and then i use it. I use it at flowering stage around 3 times 12-18 days apart. Happy growing ! :facepunch:

I have heard to use your own trimmings, etc, to make teas... but I've never done it. Too much work for my lazy stoner witchself! lol

You could do your own, but sometimes thats easier said than done. Like mentioned the extreme is a good brand, theres also Nectar for the Gods: Pegasus potion. Also remember that usually to get the best benefits of a "compost tea" not a "nutrient tea" you'll want to somewhat aerated into your soil. Usually every 7-10 days you would do a tea. P.S. as a tea adds to the microbe community in your soil, it can be good to add a little molasses to watering schedule as it gives them something to feed off.
Best of luck.

Extreme gardening - extreme tea all the way man. Easy to brew hassle free works perfectly. And for what it is good cost. The full extreme gardening line (or at least) Mykos, azos and teas are a must in any organic garden. Peace
