Now that you have composted your material here is a simple way to extract you worm castings (vermicompost) from the rest of your redworms and unfinished compost. If you would like to separate your redworms from your compost for resale this can save hours of harvest time. The slow rotation speed is easy on the redworms. Can be done with one person, but as you can see with two people it is much quicker and smoother with two or you can always modify this and mount a drill to do the turning for you.

I think the worms could feel  very battered and bruised after that. I'm wondering what effect it could have on their ability to function as worms.
Need to put a motor on that sifter so the wife (if that is your wife) can go bake a pie or something. She looks kinda bored.

What happens to the beneficial microbes when the castings dry? They are living, so don't they need water to survive? I can't seem to find any hard science on the subject.
