                  Right now I just have a simple compost pile, I just layer the super hot through out, it speeds up the process. This next year I will build bins and make sure my compost mixture is correct, I will also add the super hot, excited to see how fast I can make golden compost.

                    This stuff rocks! Around here, our winters get so cold that my compost freezes and loses all it's beneficial microbes every winter. A little hot start once every few weeks starting in the spring and my compost is right back in business!

                      I use this product because it is easy to use when building our hot compost pile. The pile heats up to 140+ in a day or so. It is also easy to keep the hot pile going with turning and additional applications. We just need to add minimal water. It breaks down the compost in record time.
