Batch of alfalfa tea almost ready

I have been making a batch of alfalfa tea in a 5 gallon bucket for the garden. It has been about 5 days so far and it seems like it's just about ready to be used. I plan on using it as a foliar spray and then pour any left overs over the soil to drench the plants. I've read to let it brew for up to 12 days in the winter months. Since it's been in the 80's here recently,  plan to use it before day 8. I stir it at least once a day with a large stick to add oxygen. My method is to pack  as much alfalfainto a 5 gallong bucket as I can, then fill with water.
