Compost Starter Cultures

Cold Brew

Compost tea brewing is normally done at room temperatures, as such it does nothing to insure the destruction of bad microbiology. Therefore it is imperative that your starting cultures have been already been pasterized and are composed of only beneficial microbes, There are two common ways to do this.
  1. Properly made compost has been throughly heated to sufficient temperatures to insure the destruction of these microbes.
  2. Use of verimcompost (worm castings). Worms are natural destructors of bad biology. 
If you are not confident in how your compost pile was processed, (that all portions of the pipe reached the needed temperatures) you should purchase your compost from a reliable source. 

You can't replicate chickens with goats

You can't reproduce what is not in the starter culture to begin with. Poor quality compost will have poor microbioal populations. A good compost should have large numbers of both bacteria and fungi as well as other micro organism. 

Diversity

Your ingredients should have high quantities of micro organism, but they should also have a lot of different species. Compost from diffent sources will also tend to have different species so it is a good idea to blend compost from different places and to mix vericompost and regular compost, to get the most robust starter cultures.
