I am soaking buckwheat groats since yesterday afternoon. They are still in water on my countertop. How long are these good like this? I have never soaked before. :o

I have this daily for breakfast so I always have them in various stages on the countertop. 8 hours is plenty for soaking and after that I drain them and rinse before hanging them in my sprout bag. I rinse them maybe twice a day for a couple of days when they begin to sprout and then refridgerate what I don't eat that day.
I guess if they smell okay or aren't slimy they are still good but they are definately ready to drain.
I used to dehydrate them with soaked flax seeds and some cut up dates and raisens but found they are just as good naturally. I also soak goji berries and add that to my morning cereal (topped with almond milk).
This is probably more than you wanted to hear!:D
