CT in the movies

Ok, this is borderline off topic, and most probably missed the scene IF they saw it, but.......

My daughter is one of the biggest Stephanie Myers fans I have ever seen. She couldn't wait to see twilight in theaters, and in prep for the up coming event, I read the books to. The movie came out on DVD and we had to buy it. Watched it with her again, and having read the book makes the movie much more enjoyable, but the reason for my post -> They take a field trip to a green house and the teacher "pours a cup of Compost Tea" into a big glass mug to show the class. Vat of tea is right in the middle of the greenhouse. Teacher admonishes the kid who ends up with the glass "not to drink........"

I saw this last night too. My fiance wanted to see it, and I wasn't going to last the whole 2 hours but when I saw the brewer, it locked me in. I think it was a Growing Solutions brewer: http://growingsolutions.com/

Yeah, could build a 2000 gallon easily for that and still make money.

I've always wondered the dissolved O2 capacity of those machines.

I wouldn't drink it personally. Who knows what all the microbes will do to your digestive system.

Generally I agree, what's interesting is that many of the common soil microbes are also in your gut
They add a strain to yogurt to reinforce digestion

People drink EM (effective microorganisms) and yucca to stimulate digestion. EM tastes almost like a vinegar type apple cider, while yucca will loosen the crap stuck to your intestines and colon. Food grade yucca is ok, while other yucca is very bitter.

Drinking compost tea isn't a good idea.
