this product is better than all the grow shop stuff you can buy and you can amplify it if you want. plus they actually have scientific study to back up their claims (weird I know).
I can personally attest to this product in eliminating bacterial and fungal disease in my garden.
The secret is that you can use the product as a seed to passage more compost tea:
5% un-sulfured molasses
1% kelp extract (my modification)
the recipe is in the video. you can use beer brewing equipment to do an anaerobic fermentation down to pH 3.5 and then its ready to be applied.
the one thing that this guy doesn't add is kelp extract which after talking with the distributor is the carbon source for the microbes that the company actually uses.
and add it 1:10 to your fermentation vessel along with unsulfured molasses from the grocery store according to the vid in the recipe and some good quality water and you basically have unlimited microbes. you can amplify the concentrate 10-20 times and then the working concentration is somewhere between 1:80 (label) and 1:40 that means that if you buy 1L you have enough product to make hundreds of gallons innoculant. the guy in the video recommends adding a bit of regular innocucor to your final blend.
the avocado farmer in the video reduced fertilizer use by 30% and increased yield by 20%.
The nice thing about using the commercial product is that you know exactly what you're getting from your tea as long as you keep your conditions consistent. You dont have that control when you make your own tea. Compost tea making is complicated and if you dont understand it well you're probably making a tea that is only giving you marginal benefits or even worse amplifying pathogens.
most traditional teas are aerobic because of the chance of amplifying pathogens. using this product as I have described will produce something that is SAFE. i do not recommend following traditional tea brewing methods and doing anaerobic fermentation- there isnt a lot known about it and what is known about it seems to suggest that you can create a breeding ground for nasty bacteria.
edits: some of the numbers were off the top of my head at work- edited to add recipe and other info
