I NEED HELP! COMMERCIAL GARRETT JUICE HAS DIFFERENT MIXING INSTRUCTIONS THAN THE ONE ON THE SITE. THIS IS CONFUSING WHEN MAKING MY OWN CONCENTRATED VERSION. DO I DILUTE COMMERCIAL COMPOST TEA, IS THE MOLASSES IN THE FEED STORES THE SAME AS BLACKSTRAP IN GROCERY STORES, DO I USE 5% VINEGAR, CAN 10% VINEGAR BE USED BY CUTTING IN HALF? ANY INFO WOULD HELP.

From the Dirt Doctor's Info Center:

Garrett Juice (ready to spray)
My recommended basic organic foliar spray is available commercially. Or you can make your own. Mix the following ingredients in a gallon of water.


1 cup manure based compost tea
1 ounce molasses
1 ounce natural apple cider vinegar
1 ounce liquid seaweed
For disease and insect control add:
¼ cup garlic tea or
¼ cup garlic/pepper tea
or 1 ounce of orange oil

Notes:

1) Ready to spray
2) Molasses - the molasses bought from feed stores should suffice. It is typically less expensive buying molasses by the gallon at feed/organic gardening stores.
3) natural apple cider vinegar not flavored. I personally use the Bragg raw and unfiltered apple cider vinegar. It is 5%. I have not seen 10% apple cider vinegar.

Also just some 'net etiquette...you might consider not typing in all caps. This is the equivalent of shouting/yelling.
