friend soaked his for 1 hour, then rinsed real well, then made jars and they're cased ready to pin now. just be sure to get it out before it starts germinating itself and rinse it well.

The warmer the water, the shorter the time needed. At the boiling point only 25-30 minutes are needed. If the water has only 60?F then 24 hours is probably not long enough.

use hot water from the tap. as hot as it will go.. submerge the grain and stir it up every 1/2 hour.. you should be able to get away with it after at least 4 hours.. more is better.. overnight is perfect!

then load bags as above, let drain until it does not drip anymore. then soak up excess water from the bottom of the bag with towels and bingo!
