Default Aerating compost teas

Greetings All

Recently there has been discussion among NZ organic growers about the
benefits of aerating compost teas
to not only brew organic compost tea but also as a method of breeding and
increasing beneficial organisms for the soil.
A friend recommended that i follow up on his comments by reading research by
Elaine Ingham from Soil Foodweb.

He also suggested that using an inexpensive
aquarium fish tank pump is an efficient way of aerating compost teas.

I have just been websearching and found the following website which gives
more information on the tools required and the processes involved :-

http://faq.gardenweb.com/faq/lists/o...739009975.html
"Aerated compost teas are the latest in scientific organic research today.
In many ways, aerated teas offer greater immediate benefits than classic
compost, manure, or other homemade foliar teas. Just by applying a cheap
aquarium air pump to a 5 gallon bucket of tea, you can get amazing results."
