I'm sure this is old hat for many but it's my first attempt so I thought I'd write it here and share some pictures as I go.
I started with some organic wheat berries. I soaked them overnight and then put them in a large colander lined with cheese cloth. I rinsed 3 times a day and in 2 days they were ready to dehydrate.
So today I spread them on 6 dehydrator trays and they will dehydrated today. It will probably take about 8 hours.
I'll check back in as I continue. I'm going to make bagels with the flour. After dehydrating, I'll grind what I need and then store any remaining dried berries in the refrigerator. I don't have a mill so I'll use my Vita-mix. That isn't ideal as it will heat the grains but I'm going to be baking them anyway so I hope it will be ok. I'll pulse and hope that I can keep the temp down.
I tried this once before and didn't make enough, so I went large this time and I think it's going to work. I'm curious how the bagels will turns out.
I have been 100% gluten free for about 6 weeks now and want to add in the sprouted grains and see what happens.
I was exciting to see the little berries sprouting!
