You would need 152 gallons of tea for application
152 gallons of application tea in a diluted (3:1) state is 50 gallons undiluted.
I havent seen actually number on what you need to brew, generally just a few shovels into a bag to brew. So lets call that a cubic foot?

So a cubic foot of compost (plus tea growth supplements) is enough for a half acre application?

Honestly seems like the water bill will be the biggest cost after production is running.
Your numbers are incorrect. Where are you getting this info from?
