Wheat berries, 1 cup
Jar, 2 quart
Water to fill the jar
This is a fermented drink full of lactobacillis and other probiotics.
Sprout the wheat:
Soak the wheat berries over night (8 to 12 hours).
Drain and rinse.
Lay the jar on it's side after shaking to spread the wheat out a bit. Cover the mouth of the jar with cheese cloth or a loose towel. It's even better to use a screen top especially made for sprouting. You will get better circulation that way. Amazon has some really nice stainless steal ones.
At this stage the object is to keep them moist by rinsing them 2 or 3 times a day and keep them ventilated by laying the jar on it's side.
This is the basic sprouting instructions for most things.
It takes 2 or 3 days to sprout. The cooler your house the longer they take and the less likely they are to spoil. Don't try to sprout them until they are long they will tend to spoil. Just let them grow to about 1/8 to 1/4 inch.
Now ferment them:
Rinse them well one last time.
Fill the jar with water. Stand it upright and cover as when sprouting.
Leave it alone for 2 or 3 days. My house, in the winter is 60 degrees at night and 65 in the daytime and it takes 3 days.
When it's ready it will be slightly cloudy and will smell like rejuvelac. I don't know how else to describe it. If it smells really rank it is probably spoiled.
Pour the rejuvelac into another clean jar and refrigerate.
Refill the jar that still has the sprouts in it, with water and let it ferment again. It usually ferments a day quicker.
When it's done pour off the liquid, refrigerate and compost the old sprouts.
It will smell unfamiliar if this is your first time but it shouldn't smell spoiled. It has a very mild flavor and slightly tangy.
You can drink this or use it instead of water or juice in a smoothie. Use it raw to get the effects of the probiotics.
