Latest Project: Vortex Brewer

It's been a while since we posted something here.

For those who read the whole blog or those who know me, I'm sure you're all aware that we make Compost Tea Brewers. We've been using them for more than 4 years now and so far, we've never seen a better local version of a compost/vermi tea brewer... until now!

For the past 2 years I've been thinking of making a Vortex Brewer. I've seen pictures and videos of this all over the internet. Only this Monday I decided building one. It was a bit easier to build than I expected as long as you have the right tools.

Enough of the intro, here it is:

I will be posting more pics soon. I will also post a video of the actual brewing action.

can i ask a copy on how to make your vortex brewer if you don't mind.
thanks in advance.

Thanks for visiting our blog. I never documented anything about my vortex brewer, i just built it according to what i saw in a video from youtube. I never had the time to take photos while building it because it was raining while i was building it and it was during night time.

here's what i'll do; i will take photos of the different parts of the brewer and explain a bit about that part. I think you can pick it up from there and maybe make your own.

I'll try to take pictures tomorrow. if i haven't post any pictures yet, just remind me through this blog. :)

just a friendly reminder about the construction of the vortex brewer as what you have said that you will be posting more information about it.
thanks and more power to you.

Wow, pleeeease tell me more about this. I can tell some things already by looking at it. Other aspects and qualities concerning it, I need learn. I assume they are all like weldable plastics. I like the monochromatic color on it. Kewwwel. Does it get all of it's air from that vortex and through purring the water through the air there? You do not want to make the bacteria dizzy, you just want to include them into a relatively gigantic environment that happens to be in cyclonic motion. I assume that water is taken from down lower on the one side, and transported up through those clear flexible tubes to those 4 points of gentle delivery into the system where the motion of that water forms a cyclonic reaction, thusly aerating, and creating an environment conducive for beneficial microbial development. I should like to make one with a one gallon container if they have one, that way I could fit a whole gallon in it and have room left over to keep it in. Neat. I wonder what the ratio is between how much water is pumped to how much water there is? That is fabulous work you did there. Wow. What are them other things on it? I think that there middle vertical pipe would be a good place to center a water heater fit inside a heat sync with fins that pertrude most of the way to the inner wall of the pipe. What do you all have in that part of the cyclon you built? Fascinating........
