This first method is my favorite. The video is 2 hours long. I enjoyed the entire presentation, but it gets a bit repetitive after the first hour.
Back To Eden

Korean Natural Farming - Making Essential Microorganisms
Making Essential Microorganisms from Scratch.
Mix one cup rice with two cups
water and shake. Strain out the rice. Cover and secure a paper towel over the top of the jar. Leave in the dark, between 68 and 77 degrees F for five to seven
days to culture the active microbes. The mixture should smell sour. Add 10 parts milk (about 5 quarts) to the one part strained rice wash, and let it ferment
for 14 days. The rice wash grows many microbes, both beneficial and
pathogenic. The milk kills off everything but the lactobacillus. Strain
solids off the top of the bucket. The yellow liquid is
purified lactobacillus serum. Dilute the lactobacillus serum in a 1:20 ratio with water and add it to your compost.
