on your climate and the time of year you are sprouting and most
importantly your personal preference - You may Rinse and Drain again
at 8-12 hour intervals for several days. However - we prefer to
sprout only to the point where most of the seeds have sprouted tiny
(1/4 inch) roots, which is typically after just 2 or 3 Rinse and
always, we suggest that you taste your crop at EVERY RINSE -
including the very first - just after the Soak period. The soaked
seeds are already alive and though they may not be their most
nutritious they are still very nutritious - they are already without
enzyme inhibitors (a very good thing indeed) so they'll digest
themselves and nourish your cells without requiring anything from
them for as long as you like (as long as you continue to Rinse and
Drain every 8-12 hours) and find out for yourself when they are most
delicious! If you grow for a week you'll have grass growing as well

choice - glass is good too - and put them in your refrigerator.
Grains do not store well in refrigeration so you should try to grow
just what you need. It isn't actually that they store poorly, it is
just that grains are cool weather crops, so though they slow down
quite a bit, they continue to grow - even in the refrigerator.
