Anaerobic Compost - Yuck!

I have been the compost manager for many years for our 1-acre urban cohousing 
community in Boulder, Colorado. Anaerobic digestion is the LAST thing you want 
your compost to do if you are attempting to created light, fluffy and nutrient 
rich compost. By sealing you compost into a bucket as has been mentioned you 
will create methane gas and an extremely putrid mixture I would never want to 
turn into my garden.

Oxygen is the key and a well turned compose in a rotating drum will break down 
in a matter of weeks and never give off a smell. If there is something I am 
missing please enlighten me. Even longtime composters can still learn new 
tricks... smile.
