soil compost extractions

Paul, I was wondering if you are still using soil compost extractions
for feeding your plants? How do you keep those extractions from growing
bacteria and fungi? How long do they keep?

Are these extractions a good source for Ca, K or Mg? or are the ratios
of N and P a little too high? Have you ever had analysis done on these?

I am using kitchen wastes to grow red worms. Or I am using red worms to
process my kitchen waste into soil (whichever you prefer). It strikes me
that I might have a good nutrient source here. Is there a way to
incorporate these nutrients into a clay ball so as to sequester it more
effectively into the substrate?
