These are pictures of wheat berries sprouting after first soaking them over night. They will sprout at different rates depending on how cold your house is.
First sprout the wheat berries like you would most any seeds.
1. Soak them about 8 hours or more. I use 1 cup of wheat berries for a 2 qt jar.
2. Rinse them thoroughly, drain the water out and lay the jar on it's side for air circulation.
3. Rinse thoroughly 2 times a day until they look like the last picture. They will have little sprouts and roots about 1/8 to 1/4" long. They will tend to spoil if you sprout them longer.
4. When they are sprouted like in the last picture, rinse them one more time and then fill the jar with clean drinkable water.
5. Don't rinse anymore. Just let them ferment for about 2 or 3 days. Unlike making yogurt, if you age them too long they will spoil.
6. When it is fermented pour off the liquid and refrigerate it. Then refill the jar with drinking water and let it ferment again. This second fermentation may be one day quicker than the first. When it's done pour off the liquid and refrigerate. Throw away the wheat berries.
