Starting trials in Biochar

I have been interested in having a go at making Biochar to use as a soil amendment and also to include in the aquaculture system as a final filtration stage after all of the large solids have been removed by the swirl filters and filter mesh.

I picked up 3 steel drums for $5 from the recycle centre at the Livingstone Shire dump. They use to hold motor oil but seem really clean now. I have started packing them with wood as it becomes available and when they are full I plan to turn them upside down in the middle of the burning pile and build a bonfire around them to try and pyrolysis the wood.
