Are sprouts supposed to be stinky?
Okay, so I grew my first batch of baby sprouts - spelt, rye, barley, lentils, sunflower seeds, millet, and buckwheat.
Then lentils didn't smell, the sunflower seeds didn't smell; but the others had this smell - sort of like a cross between bad cheese and sour milk.
I rinsed them two or three times daily as instructed and kept them on my counter covered with paper towel.
Everything sprouted just fine, but that smell...is that normal or did I do something wrong? Is that like the beginning of rejuvelac or what?
I actually threw the barley sprouts out because I just couldn't stand the smell. But the others are in jars in the fridge.
Can someone please advise?
