Alfalfa Sprouting Instructions
GROWING ALFALFA SPROUTS
SOAK8 - 12 hoursThe amount of time your seeds should soak in cool water. Soaking is how we begin the sprouting process in most cases.
RINSE / DRAIN2 - 3 times per dayHow often your seeds should be watered. Rinsing thoroughly and then draining as much water as possible are key components to growing great sprouts.
HARVEST5 - 6 daysThe time it takes to grow a finished Sprout, or other crop (Micro-Greens, Grass, Greens) from a dry Seed. Note: This "finished" Sprout is our preference. you may grow them for as long as you want! In fact, we suggest that you taste them at every rinse to discover when you like them best.
YIELD7 to 1The amount of Sprouts, Grass, Greens or Micro-Greens produced by 1 unit of Seed. For Example 2:1 means that 1 pound of Seed will produce 2 pounds of Sprouts or whatever crop you are growing.
Soak 2 Tbs. of seed in cool water for 8-12 hours.
Drain off soak water. Do not ever soak again.
Rinse and Drain with cool water every 8-12 hours.
On day 3, move your Sprouter to a well lit location. Use direct sun only if you're growing in a tray.
Continue to Rinse and Drain every 8-12 hours.
Harvest on Day 6, when the leaves are open and most of them are green.
De-Hull your crop if you like before Refrigerating.
