Okay, I really just need this clarified once and for all: is it true that you do not have to sprout the almonds, just soak them, before making almond milk? If it's necessary to sprout them, how long do you sprout them for (after soaking them of course) and how many times a day do you rinse them?? Thank you.

I dont know if almonds actualy sprout,thay do become big and fat, I soak mine over night, just change the water once or twice if when think of it, and rinse them well before I use them and I always get lovely almond milk, never had a problem. so nope you don't sprout them :)

I saw a video on the internet somewhere on how to make almond milk. She soaked them for 4 hours in a 4:1 ratio of water to nuts. She didn't say anything about sprouting them either. She blended it all up after 4 hours and ran it through a seive.

Just soaked, don't sprout.

And if you get a soy milk maker that has option for no-heat nut milk making, that takes out _all_ the work.
I made nut milk on large scale for first time last summer. A couple of bowls later and 15 minutes and running through sieve, etc., etc., etc., I had 1L of almond mylk. Boy, what a time and energy-saver (mine, too!) to just put 1 cup of soaked almonds into the little holding stainless holed cup in the machine, push of the buttons a certain way so no heat, press go and come back in 3-4 minutes!
Pour out the mylk and ready to go!!! Greatest purchase, almost, I've ever made was that soy milk maker! <g>
