considering two characteristics of the db kit, namely the amazing results it seems to deliver, and secondly the price, why hasn't anyone posted an alternative that can be mixed up with some home depot ingredients?

what are the substituents of the kit?

My friend has had alot of emails wanting the recipie for her compost. So She told me to go ahead and post it here. Here goes:

Nitrogen source:
70 pounds of horse manure
50 pounds of chicken manure
50 pounds of cow manure
20 pounds of blood meal
Carbohydrate source:
4 bales of wheatstraw
20 pounds of rice straw
50 pounds of cottonseed meal
Blending and curing items:
80 pounds of gypsum(essential for compost, prevents it from becoming greasy, provides Ca++ ions, a mineral essential to mushroom growth)
20 pounds of Superphosphate(promotes vigorous mycelial growth, but dont use to much it will turn the compost acidic to soon)
20 pounds of sulfate of potash( calcium carbonate)
1 gallon of compost activators.
Directions for use:
Soak the wheat straw for about a week, then drain out water and place in a large dark colored bin. Mix in all other ingrediants evenly and use water as needed to keep it moist not soaked. At about three days the temperature inside the compost will reach very high temps. Thats good, everything is working right. when the temperature begins to fall, turn the pile and mix it up again( around 6 days) do this until the pile turns a rich blackish brown color. Very airy with a lot of texture. My friend let heres cure for 3 months. But This time can be shortened. Depends on how much you have and how you want it cured. Now for the descrete people, here is a mini tek: 5 pounds chicken manure,(reason for chicken is its higher in nitrogen and phosphorous than horse and cow) halfbale of soaked wheatstraw(essential), 1pound bloodmeal, 2 pounds of cottonseed meal. 1 cup of superphosphate, 1 pound of potash, 3 pounds of gypsum,1 8 oz bag of activators.
Both of the above recipies can be altered very much in amounts. You just have to experiment. And remember to check your ph regularly. Try to keep it at around 7-8. This can be done by purchasing a small ph test kit at a pet store .

Its mainly live active bacteria that digests the compost alot quicker and hotter so it doesnt take as long to "cook". Its sold at most farm supply houses, and rarely but sometimes at chains like Wal-mart and Lowes. The average price for a box is about 5-8 dollars. It kinda resembles the stuff called rid-x that people put in there septic tanks to eat and breakdown waste. Compost activator is roughly the same in that it breaks down all the raw stuff you put together to compose compost quicker.
