What It Takes to Sprout With Biosta
Using the Biosta© Sprouter is simplicity itself. What you have is a sprouting system consisting of three nesting trays (7¾ inch diameter), a water collection tray and a lid. There is nothing to plug in, no batteries to insert, and no special connections required. Each tray comes with a red drainage cap. These are inserted. You are now ready to make use of your sprouting seeds. Spread them over the ribbed surface of each tray, forming a thin layer. The next ingredient in your sprouting recipe is simply warm water (approximately one pint), and this is poured into the top tray. You will soon find that the design of your Biosta sprouter allows the trays to successively drain into one another. There will only be a couple of tablespoons of water in each tray, but this is enough to successfuly sprout. Germination is normally quick, and it shouldn't take long for you to see growth begin. It also shouldn't take you long before you will have fresh sprouts ready for consumption. Generally, that will be within three to five days of the initial watering.
It is not unusual for rewatering to be required. For smaller seeds such as mustard you will likely have to do this no more than once. Larger seeds such as soybeans should be rewatered once a day. You do get a set of instructions with the sprouter, and a quick referral to them will make sure that you are on the right track. As you can see, however, there is nothing particularly difficult about putting your Biosta Sprouter into operation. You'll appreciate the fact that it takes up so little kitchen counter space. You'll also appreciate the fact that you have added something to your food storage program that will allow you use of fresh, nutritious sprouts on an ongoing basis.
Do take the proper precautions. Handle the sprouts hygenically. Begin with seeds that you know to have been properly prepared.
