View Full Version : Rejuvelac
First, why the need for cheesecloth or sprouting lid while fermenting?
When storing in refrigerator, can it be in an open mouth glass jug, or must there be an air tight lid?
Although I know it depends on preference, what do you guys find is most commonly the ratio of dry wheatberries to the ultimate desired amount of rejuvelac liquid?

To BREATH and keep the little Flying Critters out.
I don't like to leave NOTHING in the Fridge uncovered. Not Airtight Just covered.
I just "DUMP".........But I guess 2 or 3 cups to a gallon of water.
Welcome to the Forum........
Wow 2 to 3 cups of dried berries to make a gallon of rejuvelac? ok...thanks...I'll definitely up the amount in mine.
How about during fermentation, can it be left in daylight or must it be in a dark place? A video on youtube directed for a dark place... ??

This comes from www.chidiet.net:
from Dr. Ann Wigmore and the Creative Health Institute Kitchen
2 cups soft wheat berries
1. Soak in purified water 8 hrs or overnight.
2. Drain, rinse, then allow to sprout for 2 days, without rinsing.
3. When white sprout tails begin to show, add 6 cups purified water, cover jar with cheesecloth, put in a warm place where it can be exposed to at least 70 degree temp for 2 days.
4. THEN pour off, drink or refriderate, or use "rejuvelac" in a recipe.
5. The leftover seeds can be used one more time, with 4c. purified water, will culture in 1 day. Then seeds can be composted, or thrown to birds.
Caveats - do not drink soak water. Seeds must sprout.
