    ok so i got me a gallon of EM mother culture and have activated abit of it to add to my organic grow, very interested in these microbes.
    want to see if they help with the pm as well as diversify microbe population in my organic state seem will only be beneficial here we go.,.,.

    I did some tests a while back and figured out adding 1 tsp of red-star vegetarian support yeast (http://lesaffre-yeast.com/red-star/vegetarian-support-formula.html) per litre of water in an EM brew makes the process go significantly faster, reaching 3.5 pH a day faster than without.. it's pretty high in various B vitamins.. I can find it in most health food stores around these parts

    1 tsp of sea-crop per litre also makes the process go faster

    here's some jars of em brewing in an oven with the light on 24/7, I use 2 layers of glad cling wrap and seal it with a mason jar ring.. the glad cling wrap has microscopic pores that allows co2 to escape.. when it starts bubbling the cling wrap will make a dome

    EM question, somewhere I recall reading that if you are in the process of making a brew and there is an atomic bomb lit off anywhere in the world it will cause your batch to go bad. Anyone else read this?
    I guess the bottom line is what causes the batch to go bad? Radiation being thrown from the blast, or is it the emp that comes with an atomic blast?

    I dunno but I do know fungi eats radioactive fallout and it's not a good idea to eat mushrooms following a nuclear 'event'

    Insane that you guys are 11 years ahead of Colorado Growing . The whole state is bag or bottle fed canna. Crazy how after 20+ years of hydro I am switching to compost and organics . "knf, jadam ,hi brix fusion ish gardening." Convinced a guy who owns a farm that I could cut cost by switching to knf compost , duel arc bulbs and teas. Kinda easy because he ran coil lights and canna coir & canna nutes. Gave him a lil broken down bone meal and bacteria his product has been best ever. I compost his coir and reuse it ;instantly saved him a few thousand . Organic can match hydro in yield and beat production cost . Also terps are so much better. You guys rock so hard and years before I even could catch up. So humbled. Made my first labs and re producing em1 , So much catching up to do.
