    Question Liquid composting on TOH hour

    Where can I find the 'formula' and 'how to' do the liquid composting shown on This Old House Hour? It showed a mixture that was suspended in a plastic barrel, (Molasses was one of the ingredients added to the water) then aerated for 24 -48 hours, liquid put it sprayer, water can to 'feed' plants - or sump pump and hose to do a lawn.

    This looks like a great thing to do. Does anyone have a size recommendation for the aeration pump? Lots of choices. I think the one on the show can be bought ******. Just need the right size. Thanks.

    Update: the link jasonjam has posted has a link on the right side of the page that is "How to build a Tea Brewer" with the spec of Air pump – recommended 9,000 cu.in/min.
