Can you use the bags as they are and just have a multiple bag system?

one bag is more than sufficient for making the tea. I just didn't want to hang it up or clamp it anymore. I  wanted to put the aerator in, then the netting and let it drape over the sides to the handle of the brute container, put in the food, then when I'm finished just pull the bag out. This method only eliminated those clamping steps. You know I'm lazy, nothing new there. 
Also, I feel the microbes grow better when they can bounce freely in the water like a California flower child bounce

You can make a five-gallon batch, then put it into a larger container of de-chlorinated water like 25 gallons to make a 1 gallon of tea to 5 gallons of water ratio too. I'm just simplifying the steps.
If you add like liquid humus to your water till it dark that means the chloramine has been bound up and now is inert and can't hurt the microbes. Also, you can get liquid humus from your compost by letting the water slowly run thru 2-3 cups of water. the brown extract that comes out the other side of a handheld screen is liquid humus. It's free.
go to 20.06 in this video for the procedure.

has55's R & D Journey - Page 10 Empty white seeded mustard and nematodes and fungal disease

Post  has55 on 7/11/2019, 2:41 am

I took the advice of the USA Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education to plant white mustard seeds in my cucumber beds and was very pleased with the result of no fungal disease as compared to my tomatoes. I will plant it and arugula this fall for next spring preparation and also intermingle it with the tomatoes, peppers and cucumber while they are growing next year. they must be cut back when they bolt, but that easy to do. here are pictures of my cucumbers which are still going strong and the tomatoes which are struggling with the disease. Also next year in the fall. I will apply the Johnson Su compost to the beds and use as compost tea.

WOW. It great to see our government embracing soil health and really working hard to see how the biological community works. I thoroughly enjoyed the video. Great info.

Right on!  I have used cover crops forever, as did my father and grandfather before me, as a cheap way to boost the soil organic matter, to fight weeds, to prevent erosion, and to attract pollinators.  Before leaving for a month-long road trip, I cleaned out the tomato bed, refreshed it with compost, and planted the Winter Rye/Hairy Vetch cover crop. This is a picture of that cover crop a month later.  After we have some hard freezes, the tops will die back and cover the soil until spring when it will start growing again.
