and it looked good enough to eat but:eek: when my hubby bit into it it had a strong femented taste and he wouldn't eat it.
I let the sprouted buckwheat go too long in water and now i have to throw it away or can it be saved.
I hate to waste but it does taste pretty strong.

I wouldn't eat it! If in doubt, throw it out. :) But try again on the buckwheat, though. It's my favorite bread ingredient. It doesn't have a strong taste, and it seems to give my bread the carb texture I enjoy.
I usually soak my groats overnight, then put them in a sprouting bag and rinse 2x a day for 2 days or so, until I'm ready to make a recipe with it. The bag is nice because buckwheat gets kinda slimy, and with a bag you can rinse them clean.

buckwheat only needs to be soaked an hour. by then it has absorbed all the water it possibly can.

I can usually eat just about anything but this was bad.
I oversprouted it and it stayed in water too long.

I've tried a few recipes using buckwheat and every single time, the recipe fermented in the dehydrator. The dehydrator is where things go down hill, I believe (unless the recipe wasn't dehydrated, then I guess the problem was the soaking and sprouting time). Some people say to turn up the dehydrator to 140 degrees for like the first hour or something but I'm afraid of the temp getting too hot.

I try to turn it off and just let the existing heat circulate.
I'm not sure my bread is really raw after that.

Does anyone have a source online for the buckwheat. My health food store no longer carries it. :( I like it for raw pizza crust..
