How to Make Lactic Acid Bacteria Serum (LABS)


What’s up “mga kabukid” (my fellow farmers) and welcome to the Agrillenial I am Reden Costales and in this video will teach you how to make Lactic Acid Bacteria Serum or LABS But before we proceed with the video, please make sure to like the video and of course please click on the subscribe button as well as the notification bell so you won’t miss any of our videos here in the Agrillenial. I’m sure you’ll learn a lot from them. Check out also my other videos. I have other instructional videos on how to make different types of fertilizers how to use them, and their procedures So please check them out! We will start the video shortly after this. Alright! I’m now showing you the materials that we need for making Lactic Acid Bacteria. Let’s start off with this one. This is rice wash. It’s best to use the first batch of collected rice wash But if ever you wash your rice for the 2nd or 3rd time, you may still use them. So here, we are going to use 1 liter of rice wash. We would also need 1 liter of fresh milk. Any brand will do. We will also use beer. Any other brand will do. Beer has yeast which is also an example of beneficial bacteria. Yeast is used to ferment alcoholic beverages such as wine and beer. Yeast is used to ferment alcoholic beverages such as wine and beer. The volume of beer doesn’t matter. You may use either 500mL or 350mL, as long as you have some. We will also be needing 2.5 liters of molasses. There will be two applications of molasses in this video. First application will require 1L then 1.5L for the next application. That’s why we need a total of 2.5L of molasses. For the tools, we need a measuring cup, labeling materials We also need 10L of water and a big bucket. If you prefer to use other types of containers such as water bottles or smaller buckets. Please make sure that it has a sealable or tight cover. If you don’t have one like this, you may use Manila paper, muslin or cheesecloth and seal it with an elastic band. So those are the materials that we need for making Lactic Acid Bacteria Serum. Let’s now start with processing our LABS. We now have the complete set of materials that we need. But before we start. Just a disclaimer, this procedure will take around 4 weeks to be finished. For the sake of making this video seamless, I will show you the entire procedure without waiting for the fermentation process where the adding of ingredients are done weekly so as to save time in making this video. The important thing is you’ll see the procedure. So again, we won’t be waiting for the day when we will be adding the ingredients or the weekly intervals before we add an ingredient. This is just for the sake of a seamless process as this just for demonstration purposes only so that I can show you all of the steps easily. We will add all of the ingredients in just one video. Let’s first start with the rice wash. Let’s get 1L of rice wash. Like I said earlier, it is best to use the first batch of collected rice wash. But you may also use the 2nd and 3rd batch of rice wash collected. We now have 1L of rice wash. Let’s pour it into the the bucket/container that we have After pouring the rice wash, we’re supposed to ferment it for 1 week. So we need to cover it with a Manila paper. It needs to have an Aerobic fermentation. That’s why we need to use Manila paper and we need to seal it with an elastic band. I somehow lost my elastic band 😅😅😅 But anyway, this has to be sealed with the use of an elastic band. Let it ferment for 1 week and also add a label indicating the start of fermentation and when the next ingredient will be added. So let’s pretend that we fermented this for 1 week Fast forward… After 1 week, the rice wash should smell somewhat sour which indicates that the Lactic Acid has already fermented. This is already rich in carbohydrates, fats and protein. Next is we need 1L of milk We will enrich the fermented rice wash by adding milk By the way, I’ve also done my research and there are a lot of techniques in making Lactic Acid Bacteria. But the technique that I’m showing you now is the easiest and practical way of fermenting or making your own Lactic Acid Bacteria without the need for straining because other tutorials show that you need to strain it, or to siphon out some things So for me, those methods seem tedious and that is why I’m showing you the easiest and most practical way of making Lactic Acid Bacteria It’s already easy, but I made it easier for you guys. So now, after one week after the rice wash has fermented, let’s add 1L of milk. So for those who would like to ask if they can use powdered milk. Yes, you may use it as long as you mix it with 1L of water If I’m not mistaken, the ratio for it is 5 tbsp of powdered milk to 1L of water But please also check the instructions given on the package for the ratio or how many scoops are needed per 1L of water. Just make sure that you use 1L of milk. Any brand will do. You may use Fresh milk, skim milk, low fat or just any kind of milk. Milk will provide the additional Lactic Acid. I saw others use Yakult. But of course, that’s quite pricey as compared to regular milk. (comparing the price of Yakult versus ordinary milk) So we’re done pouring the milk. I’ll show you later how it looks like. Again, we need to cover it. Then label it and also mark the date as to when the next ingredient will be added (after 7 days) Then seal it again with an elastic/rubber band And let it ferment for 1 week Fast forward… to another week… So after one week, we’ll add 1L of molasses. So here we have 1L of molasses. Let’s pour it in the bucket which contains our Lactic Acid Bacteria. Pour it slowly. When you’re done, cover it again with Manila paper and seal it. Then label it and also mark the date as to when the next ingredient will be added (after 7 days) Then wait for another week…. Then after one week… It’s supposed to smell partly sweet and partly sour since we already added Molasses. Next is.. since it’s already fermented, we will increase its volume since we already have the initial cultured Lactic Acid Bacteria by adding water, molasses and beer. Beer is optional if you want to have microorganisms of yeast in your Lactic Acid Bacteria. Otherwise, you may disregard it as this is still Lactic Acid Bacteria whether there’s beer or none. Now, let’s add 10L of water The bucket’s almost full. Again, please take note of the weekly interval of adding ingredients. Don’t make your mixture the way we’re doing it right now as this is for demonstration purposes only. Since the mixture became diluted because of the water that we added, we need to make it concentrated again by adding molasses and ferment it again for another week. I can’t open it 😆 ** FInally! ** Whew! I had to use my muscle power there! 💪😂 Anyway… Let’s add 1.5L of molasses since we added 10L of water. The bucket’s almost full. So that’s how it looks like. Again, let’s add 1.5L of molasses. So this is 1L, let’s pour it. And then, let’s add 500mL. You may also use brown sugar if you don’t have molasses. Use kilograms as unit of measure. So if this is 500mL, use 500 grams of sugar instead. And lastly, beer. **Yep, this is definitely beer!** Let’s add 500mL of beer ** Feels sad that I’m pouring this here ** This beer tastes really good though. By the way, this is not sponsored by Red Horse. Including Selecta, the milk that I used earlier, there isn’t any sponsorship deal here. Alright, since we added all of the ingredients here, We need to cover it again with Manila paper and let it ferment for another week. After which, this can already be used. Again, label it, mark and seal it so it can ferment aerobically. It needs air to ferment because Lactic Acid and yeast are both aerobic bacteria. They need air so that they can reproduce. That is why we need Manila paper as cover. So again, let’s pretend that a week has already passed. This is how it looks like now. So again, after one week, this is already ready for use. What are the uses of Lactic Acid Bacteria? It can help improve the immune system of animals. It can boost their resistance against certain diseases. Youcan use it in watering your compost bins or piles to speed up the composting process. If you have dried leaves, animal (cow, goat, pig, chicken) manure as part of your compost, you can spray this there to speed up the composting process and to remove foul odor. You can also use this in watering your plants whether fruit or leaf vegetables and fruit trees To increase plant resistance against diseases such as soil-born diseases. So those are the uses of Lactic Acid Bacteria Serum. The dilution ratio is minimum of 10mL per 1L of water. Maximum of 50mL per 1L of water. There’s no overdose when it comes to organic mixtures. You can do 1L of water, 1L of LABS without any issue. However, it’s not practical because you are consuming a lot of LABS and you may need to make another one which is time consuming. So I would advice that you use the recommended dilution ratio of 10mL to 50mL of LABS per 1L of water. If you are going to use this to water your plants, you may do so either once (minumum) or twice (maximum) a week. Alright. So that’s the entire procedure for the making and the usage of Lactic Acid Bacteria Serum as well as the materials that you will need for making it. To summarize everything that I showed you earlier, First is 1L of rice wash. Ferment for 1 week. Add 1L milk. Ferment for another week. Add 1L of molasses. Ferment for 1 week. And then for the last week of fermentation, Add 10L of water, 1.5L of molasses or 1.5Kg of sugar And 1 bottle of beer, any size or brand. Then ferment it for the last time for 1 week then it’s ready for use. I hope you learned a lot in this video. Please don’t forget to like, comment, share and subscribe to the Agrillenial. Thank you. Take care and keep farming! 😊

  1. I also did it, too, kasi wala akong EM1. Hahaha! In my case po, I spoiled the milk for a day muna. Instead of using beer, I took a teaspoon of yeast sa kitchen (mas mura din yun kesa beer). I used it for drenching, pambasa sa compost, and panggawa ng bokashi.

  2. How is today bro! As you train us on various method of natural bio organic preparation. So on livestock uses can I choose one method or more than one on one time? Thanks from Tanzania

  3. Sir paano po yung curd na nabuo sa pinaghalung hugas bigas at gatas, di na po ba tatanggalin ung bago ilagay ang molasses?

  4. At isa pa sir kung may labs ka na hindi na ba kailangang iextend uli kung gagamitin na tulad ng em1 na iniextend to emas o paano ang pagtitimpla ng labs kung gagamitin na?

  5. Kuya same lang po ba to sa BT(bacillis thuringiensis), good bacteria daw na nagsusuffocate sa mga worm na umaatake sa leafy vege?

  6. Sir need help lang po Talaga paano po gumawa ng organic inoculant na pag nilagay mo sa puno mag magkaroon ng infection or damage? I hope po mag rereply kayo

  7. Pwede ba Itong ilagay sa puno boss Yong butasan Yong puno at ilagay Yan mag kakaroon ba ng infection Ang puno nito?

  8. Paano po Ito gawin sir paturo Yong pwede Lang inject sa tree need help.

     Bio Stimulant / Fungi / Fungus / Fungal (Bio Fermentation Treatment) Inoculant / Inoculum that inject into the tree to stimulate the resinous. It is an inducer for inoculation or inducement process

  9. Make din po sana kayo sir ng video on how to make organic starter, grower and finisher feeds po? Thank u.

  10. gd pm po. pwede po ba itong e deretsong e spray sa mga animals o ipa inom po sa kanila? meron po ba kayong video ng emas?

  11. Sir pagpinaghalo ba yung hugas bigas tsaka fresh milk ok lang ba kahit magform ng parang cheese hindi nba tatanggalin yun?

  12. D b nga po hindi mo.n sya sinala…un kc ung mga.napanuod kong ibang diy…ok lng b n hindi n sya.salain.every week n mag add.k ng ingredient…o sasalain p dn at the end of last fermentation….

  13. Sir, pano po gawin para di agad masira if fermented na po, ilalagay po ba sa isang lagayan na air tight? At lagay sa ref? Thank you sir
