I thought i'd finally post this cause I've never seen it presented this way. this method is probably the best and safest method(to organisms especially proto's)(ive tested) besides pouring strait from the brewer, this is great method for the home owner/gardener with a large yard or garden that need to cover a lot of sf.
only draw back is you need electricity source of some kind or generator and have to deal with the hose and electrical cord and clean up after wards, pretty easy though for some one just applying once in a while, i don't recommend this for the pro. to many logistics

here it goes. 50gbarrel,sub pump, 3/4" or bigger garden hose as long as you need,coupling if needed,extension cord, thats it.

small centrifugal sub sump the kind used for drainage basement,pools,drains ditch's whatever, biggest you can afford, at lest 1/4hp 3/4 and higher is better, larger pumps you can get larger particulate matter out.
you will need a coupling of some kind if the pump doesn't have 3/4" or 1" fitting to attach to garden hose

basically all you have to do is fill the barrel with tea,turn on and dump your sub pump with hose attached to the bottom of the barrel and use you finger at the other end of the hose to adjust your spray pattern. this works very well. just make sure you clean well after every use

hope this help some of you.
