    Hi Tamlin, interesting post! I wonder however, where Rob mentions that he was worried about bacterial contamination, if you could not cool the concentrait, put it in jars and can it, therby avoiding both bacteria and getting burned while extending shelf life indefinitely.

    Hey GC,
    Why not? It works for beer, as long as the storage vessles are sterile, I think it would be best to wait until the brew had cooled. BTW: he is right, this is best cooked up outside. Yech!

    I use old peat on Gardenia, they need acid soil. Once in a while on Hydrangea, acid soil turns hydrangea flowers blue, neutral keeps them white and alkaline makes them pink. Mine are usually pink because my tap water is alkaline but if I use Miracid or pot them in a peat mixture I have blue!

    I have an idea. Make the tea, let it cool and settle, decant it into the containers you want to store it in and then stick it in the microwave for 2-5 minutes (enough to get it to boil.) This way you don't burn yourself and the tea will be sterile after you get it out of the microwave.

    Just trying to make life a little easier.

    Parasuco, When I was 5 years old I cooked eggs in the microwave and when I cut into them they exploded. I was rushed into the emergency room at kaiser...

    Please be careful while using boiling liquids, poisionous fertilizers and fungicides, and live ammo. Never place shotgun shells in the microwave. Children under 30 should seek parental premission before attempting peat tea or brain surgery.
