Wasn't sure where to put this so put it in growing in soil my bad if it's wrong- IV started the process of making compost tea IV used a 25l bucket IV put 5 LTRs of water and 2 ltres of compost and IV been mixing it up every time I go past as I don't own a bubbler,I'll leave it to sit for 24hrs and then strain and filter it tomorrow,🤞 it does the job once I've diluted it with some pH water,

 @firetop95, once you've done it a couple times it gets easier. It doesn't have to be perfectly strained either it can be chunky they don't mind. I mix a gallon of compost and 1lb of worm castings and 2-3 Tbsp. molasses , along with 2gal/8L+ water, then mix shake or bubble. Dilute afterwards to 5 gallons.

 There's new evidence that some believe a short mixing time is better that an overnight bubble, that the more dominate strains will take over with a long mix time but more variety of microbes with a shorter mix time, I would need a microscope to prove this though. So if your short on time try just shaking the shit out of a bucket for about 30 mins, I've tried it and the plants didn't die and pretty sure it had the same effect. 

 Good luck man, your on the right track. 👍

Thanks for the info @woodl I didn't persistently shake I shook it up through out the day/night,each time I went passed I gave it a 5/10min shake up I filtered it through some cloth an ended up with a 4ltr bottle full of juice I haven't added nothing to it as I don't have nothing yet still need to go shopping but when I do I'll grab some worm castings and some molasses,going out today so hopefully I find what I need 🤞👍👍
