I have been composting without this stuff for years -- with limited results. I have a large plastic compost bin that doesn't get turned as often as it should due to the work involved. I can't do a proper job of stirring the pile by inserting fork and/or shovel (through the undersized fill hole) into the bin, so I must move the bin, sift the usable compost out, and return the remains to the bin. Since buying this Compost Starter, after adding several layers of material to the bin, I sprinkle just about a tablespoon of this over the top and lightly water it in. It has noticeably increased the amount of usable compost I can sift out of the bin every few weeks.
If you turn your pile often (via tools or tumbling composter), you will likely see limited benefit in using this, beyond getting your batch started. The regular turning of the pile will speed up the distribution of helpful organisms through your pile -- and they will work, reproduce, and work some more at amazing speed. However, if you are just lumping new material regularly onto your pile(s), it can take quite some time for those little workers to work their way to the top. That's why it helps to turn it over or mix it up regularly. If you can't find the time or it is just too much work and you want to speed up the process anyway, adding a bit of this occasionally helps get the action going in the upper reaches of the pile.
Bottom line: if you want to get the most out of your composting without putting in the maximum effort to keep turning it or mixing it up, this product will help.
This stuff smells like 500 barnyards in one small bag. I'm sure it does the job it was made to do. Be really careful opening and using this. After I poured half the bag into the compost bin the yard stunk for days and every fly in town came to my house.
