Ok so I have been attempting to make rejuvelac to make Anne Wiggmore's energy soup. I have used buckwheat and kamut. Both of which did not sprout. So I am going to try some wheat berries next. Do any of you have a good source for grains that are not dead. I bought all of these at the health food store but clearly they are not alive. Also any ideas about shelf life of the grains? Thanks

I buy my soft wheat berries from Wholefoods. I also ordered some rye from http://www.sunorganic.com/ I am doing 1/4-1/3 cup of each to make my rejuvilac.. My wife is making nut cheese also with it. Comes out awesome.
Here are some pics.

My favorite grain to use is Rye. Stores easily with less broken grains. I purchase mine from wheatmontana.com It sprouts quickly and has a great flavor. I follow the meathod for rejuvilac from sproutpeople.com. We go through about a gallon per week.

I also bought Wheat Berries at Whole Foods and they sprouted great!

what is the deal with rejuvelac--i mean is it really ok to use? i thought i read on a thread somewhere that the ann wigmore institute even stopped using it because theres no way to guarantee whether you are getting multiplication of good bacteria or bad bacteria and you cant tell my the smell either; apparently there are some bad bacteria that make it smell the same way the "good" ones do... someone had done a study and actually made a bunch of batches of rejuvelac and tested it in a lab and 50 or 60% of the batches had bad bacteria that were fermenting it, versus 40-50% that had the good bacteria, or somethign like that. and there was no superficial way to tell..... ive wanted to try it because i thought it would be a great probiotic drink, but then i read this......

You're right, Kaybee. I personally asked Brian Clement of Hippocrates about rejuvelac, which I learned to make from Dr. Ann herself, and he confirmed that they no longer use rejuvelac at Hippocrates and it's a good way to promote candida and other disease.

its too bad theres not a way to select for the healthy bacteria and get ONLY them to flourish in it.... seems like a good way to get probiotics, and instead of having to buy and take a pill with a certain amt of probiotic in it, in the rejuvelac they multiply themselves. too bad.
