Over cooking? CT brewing goes through a cycle of who is dominant when. The bacteria take over early and then calm down as they eat the available foods that they like. The brew is very diverse at first and then many become a few. later in the brew fungi begin to grow out (hopefully) as you progress towards 36 to 48 hours there is less diversity.

This is one of the arts of brewing knowing what your application is and catching the brew at the right time, more bacterial, catch it early. More fungal, select for those foods and let it brew longer. If it goes too long, throw it back in the compost pile and start over

daner, lol

only problem with witch's brews is keeping up with O2 requirements to stay truly aerobic
but, high nute brews are good for just that, high nutes, good for puring straight onto soil of veg's and things, but i would be worried to spray that on customers lawns or getting it on myself/mouth/eyes/hands.


AACT from my observation will grow out in the first 10 hrs+ fungi, once bacteria take over they will consume?/hinder?/compete and take O2 away from aerobic fungi, then protozoan grow, amoeba can eat fungi possibly? once tea stabilizes and foods are used up and bacteria reduced fungi might recover? depending
