View Full Version : Millet smell after soaking?
09-05-2009, 04:11 PM
I m not planning on sprouting Millet very long,more so wanted to soak them.... but after looking at Alissas book it says to soak Millet for 5 or 6 hours I believe. I left them in the soak water alot longer. Then a few moments ago, I went to go wash and rinse them and they smelled bad, but after I rinsed them the smell is gone? Does this mean they are no good?

How long did you leave them soaking? Days? If days, I'd be a little cocerned. if like overnight, they will be fine.
I think if the smell is gone you could rinse, rinse, rinse and they will be fine...

Yeah it was overnight... Not days and days. The smell is gone. I just wanted to soak, then make whatever goodies I wanted... Thanks for the support!

If it were me? I'd use it. Sometimes the soak water gets funky and smells, but the seeds or nuts are fine.

I would use them because the same thing happened to me with buckwheat. I soak my buckwheat 48 hours even though they say to soak them overnight at most. I just keep rinsing and the smell is gone.
PS How does your millet taste when you soak that long? Bitter at all? I'd like to get some millet but I don't know how they taste

When I do long soaks (usually the larger seeds like mung beans @ 12-24) I will change out the soak water once or twice.
