Hi everyone, I am trying to make something and it requires rejuvelac (from what I have read it is some type of liquid from sprouted something) does anyone know an easy way for me to make this or buy this somewhere? Please I could really use the help. Thanks in advance. :)

I can tell you how it's made, but it takes a while. You take a grain such as wheat or rye (I have used both) and put enough in a sprouting jar to fill it 1/4. Then you fill the jar up with water. Let it sit over night. The next day drain. Then you rinse and drain 3 times a day for the following 2 days and let it sprout. Next day, rinse, drain. Fill jar with water and let it sit for 48 hours. That is your first batch of rejuvelac. Drain it into a jar and refrigerate/use. Fill the jar up with water again and let sit 24 hours. This is your second batch. Do it a 3rd time and let sit another 24 hours. This is your 3rd and last batch. You can either use the sprouts now in a bread or cracker recipe, or throw them on the compost.
There were a couple of threads here lately that said that the Hippocrates Institute no longer does rejuvelac, because it can end up with bad bacteria. I did not have any problems with mine, as long as I kept it refrigerated and used it within 4-5 days. It's a lot of trouble making it though, and I would assume regular water could easily be substituted for it in a recipe, or maybe, depending on what you are making, use rice milk or almond milk?

I think Rejuvelac is "A GOOD THING". It's as easy as anything else letting you know when it is no longer drinkable. Follow your nose although it has a smell but they are different.
I don't do all the rinsing. I use Winter Wheat......add water and let it sit until it begin to fermente then I pour the water off and refridgerate. Sometimes I even smash some of the Berries in the Vita-Mix.
