I'm working on putting that diagram/flow chart together (I mentioned it on the Nitrogen thread) and decided to take it just a little farther. Which leads me to this question... If you do a CT wrong, what do you get? For example, if done wrong (too much food, not enough aeration, bad temperature control, what else?) You get anaerobic microbes.. do you have a higher chance of pathogens? AND, does brewing anaerobic tea tend to make NO2 and CO4 (basically does it have a higher chance of volatilizing nutrients into the atmosphere while brewing?) Thanks.
