Whats up DGC!
This hack is more for growers in colder climates in winter months. My grow area can get a little cool in the winter months. Being someone who likes to use teas it has become a little issue. I heard that microbes reproduce best in temps above 80 and the area I brew teas in is about 65. I threw a heating pad under my tea bucket and so far so good! Hope this helps someone out.
