Manure tea odor is bad
I soaked dry quail manure in a burlap bag to make manure tea. It has been sitting a couple weeks now. The odor is so bad I can't stand it. What did I do wrong?

If your tea smells bad it is possible that you don't have enough air/oxygen flowing through it. An adequate oxygen flow is achieved by stirring the mixture gently several times a day so that the aerobic bacteria win out over the anaerobic (putrid smelling) bacteria. Try adding some fresh water and stir more often so that the aerobic bacteria become victorious over their foul counterparts.
