How to use the Sproutbag

It doesn’t get much easier. Soak your seeds for 8-12 hours in a jar or simply by putting them straight into the sprout bag, dipping the whole bag, “seeds n all” into some water.

After soaking, rinse quickly with fresh water, then hang on a hook or knob or lay it in the dish rack.

You then only need to rinse them twice per day, roughly 12 hours apart by immersing the bag in a pot of pure water (preferably filtered) for at least 30 seconds. Within 5-10 days you’ll have fresh, crunchy sprouts – too easy!!

When your sprouts are right to go, put them in a container, or put the whole bag, “sprouts n all” into the fridge where they should keep for up to 2 more weeks.

After use, you turn the bag inside out and flush it with warm water to clean it. You may have noticed that this is probably my favourite piece of sprouting equipment.

In this ever-increasingly complicated world it is refreshing to find something that is so simple and cheap that does exactly the job you want it to do.

The very fact that it is so simple with minimal parts also makes it much less prone to damage, or losing important bits.
The Sprout Bag also has excellent air circulation and drainage. This helps to minimise any mould problems that you can potentially have when growing your sprouts. The best part of all about the bag however is the quality of sprout it produces.

The Sprout Bag - simple, cheap and effective! – Great value for money.

Why a Bag?

People often assume sprouts are best grown in jars. Indeed, in the hands of a diligent gardener, jars can successfully grow several varieties of sprouts. But jars were never designed for sprouting.

Their popularity has more to do with their wide availability and free cost than with their merits as a gardening tool. Any serious sprout grower will soon run into the many limitations of jars as sprouting devices.

While there are other types of sprouters available with different features, the sprout bag is a perfect substitution for the jar, with several advantages. A little sprout history lesson follows.

Sprout  History  Lesson

The Dark Ages of Sprouting
–THE TROUBLESOME SPROUTING JAR

  • Never designed for sprouting.
  • Poor air circulation. Small opening limits air.
  • Incomplete drainage. Stagnant air & water promotes mold growth.
  • Open end requires cheesecloth, rubber bands, screens, or lids.
  • Cheesecloth over mouth collects bacteria.
  • Not usable for sprouting many vegetables, large beans, and gelatinous seeds (chia).
  • Prone to breakage. Difficult to transport. Accidents ruin crop.
  • Take up valuable kitchen space.
  • Time consuming 4 steps. Fill up, pour out, tilt at an angle, drain.
  • Cumbersome to handle multiple jars. Difficult to get hands in and out.
  • Takes up precious refrigerator space and shelf space. Fixed size.

Some tips to get the most out of your Sprout Bag...

After a while of using your sprout bag, it may start to smell, have mold growth, show signs of wear and tear and leave you cloudy water when rinsing. This article will give you a quick breakdown of how to clean your sprouting bag or bags properly.

Each time after you sprout, you should turn your sprouting bag inside out and give it a medium to high pressured rinse with cold water. Use your hands to remove any excess sprouting hulls or roots on the sprout bag.

Never use soaps, detergents, a brush, bleach, hydrogen peroxide or anything harsh to wash your sprout bag with. You do not want to weaken the natural fibers of your sprouting bag.

A good indication of when you should sterilize your sprouting bag is when your sprouts turn bad or the water starts to turn cloudy.  To sterilize your sprouting bag, place your sprouting bag in a pot of boiling water inside-out for 5 minutes.  Let it fully air dry and shake off any leftover sprouting hulls or roots.

Some of the larger beans such as peanut, soy and garbanzo (or chick peas), should be rinsed 3 times a day to prevent the water from becoming cloudy in the first place. This is especially true if you are sprouting in a hot climate.

Sprouting Bag Tip: To avoid letting roots getting caught in your sprouting bags and to extend the life of your bags, simply immerse your sprouting bags in a sink of water and let the sprouts move around while you rinse them. This way the sprouts are never in the same spot long enough for the roots to grow into the walls of your sprouting bags.
