- 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.
- Harvest2 - 4 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.
- Yield2 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. You do not have to grow them all at once of course, unless you wish to =:-D

Recommended Sprouters for Pinto Bean Sprouts
The taste is good and after 4-5 rinse and drain cycles they are more plump than overnight soaked "grocery store cooking" type pintos; but notice what is said in the "notes" section about Pintos as SPROUTS. "Pintos are rarely prolific sprouters... and though we look for the best sprouters... we are willing to accept as low a germination rate as 50% when it comes to Pintos." In other words do NOT expect almost every bean to have a sprouted tail--let alone a LONG one.
