Nettle manure?

I decided to make some and it has been brewing for 3 weeks now but oh the smell! It smell like pig manure, is this normal please anyone know?



That's the goodness in it! Absolutely normal and comfrey liquid smells the same.
It's all the nitrogen (ammonia) which makes the smell. Absolutely wonderful feed for tomatoes and other demanding plants, but make sure you dilute it quite a bit as 'more is worse' so to speak.

Before using it is there a ratio of water to concentrate Bertie say 1 in 10 parts or 1 in 100? as a rough guide.
