I'm still a little scared to take the plunge into recycled soil. I'm really happy with the results I get with a peat/perlite/ewc/lime/bone/blood/kelp/greensand/biotonesuperstarter mix with just water. I have really grown quite fond of my blumat drippers so I don't want to have to use teas throughout my flowering cycle.
I grow in 75 gallon beds, 2 per 1kW.

This is Casey Jones at 62 days, after a 2 year growing hiatus on my part -

Lapides it doesn't sound like you're too far off. Just reuse what you have and start from here. Other than the biotone you and I are pretty much on par with ingredients. I wouldn't worry so much about the teas as a big issue.

I reuse it for vegging plants. So I guess I DO reuse it, just not for flowering.

My biggest fear is not really knowing how much of whatever to add back in. Too much, too little, it just really bothers me. Mainly because I have such consistent results mixing new stuff the same way every time. I don't have to think about or guess about anything. I tried reusing once, and the result seemed to be fine. But anything after that, I get really nervous about having too much or not enough of something.

So I was reading the lancaster ag quarterly pamphlet and Dr Paul Dettloff Recommends adding 5 things to foliar sprays

Proteins/Aminos - Fish hydroslyate or other source
Trace elements - seaweed, sea minerals
Sugar - Molasses, Diatastic malt
Carbon - Fulvic acids

Damn thing sent without my permission..... Ill try again

So I was reading the lancaster ag quarterly pamphlet and Dr Paul Dettloff was talking about increasing mineral content in forage grasses and how to improve their protein content and healthy growth rates.
He recommends adding 5 things to foliar sprays

Proteins/Aminos - Fish hydroslyate or other source
Trace elements - seaweed, sea mineral
Sugar - Molasses, Diatastic malt
Carbon - Fulvic acids
Sea salt - for EC on the leaf surface

I use a foliar of 1 tlbs/gal Organic Neptunes, Water from a kelp soak, 1 tsp molasses, 30 ml Ful-power, and 1 tlbs Seacrop

Plants respond in a positive fashion

recycling works for me, but i also struggle with the lack of knowing exactly what is 'left' in my soil mix. i wouldnt say the results are any better than only using the soil once (i used to re-use my cannabis soil in the general garden), but you probably get the benefit of some of the amendments a lot more in a recycled soil.

@ Lapides Thats why it's best to add a diverse mix of feeds, then you wont have to worry, as you will have everything available at different times, aslong as you keep adding the diverse mix then you will be gravy
