How do you brew fungal dominant compost tea? Get the basics here – to make it fungal dominant, you need to grow fungus on your compost before brewing with it. You can do that by sprinkling it with ground up oats. Keep it moist and wait a few days for the fuzz to start growing. Once it’s ready, dump it into your compost tea bag and get brewing. Brew for no more than 18-24 hours and distribute it immediately.
