I understand.....I got a five gallon size with pump. Put worm casing in bag hang it over side in the water and start pump. Put a little molasses to feed em and let it brew for a couple day. I intend to get some tested. Let water sit in sun for a couple days for chlorine before I start.

Worm castings are a great start for brewing compost tea. But I'm still not sure what you're doing.

Here are some good links to help you learn how to make great compost tea:

Our business is maintaining grass and flowers. We try our best to make both grow. I have got some problem areas and I am throwing everything I can at it. I have a compost tea making machine that I used a few years ago so I thought I could brew some up and spray it on this 4 acres of grass.

You have to diagnose the problem(s) before you can treat for it.
Throwing everything at it blindly will not solve the cause of the problem(s).
