Will this WBS work?
    #2398573 - 03/03/04 03:43 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

A friend of mine purchased a bag of finch seed this morning and was wondering if it would be satisfactory. It contains approximately equal parts of Millet, Canary Grass Seed, Sunflower Chunks, and Thistle Seed. Does anyone see any problems with this particular mix? Thanks in advance

Sounds fine, the only slight problem would be the sunflower
chunks, though they can be used, they have quite
a high contam risk, due to having large air pockets in them.

If possible, use a fine mesh strainer to remove the larger chunks of sunflower, and allow the smaller fine seed to drop through.

if impossible due to the sunflower being in small chunks, it still
can work out fine, just be sure to pressure cook it well.

my WBS alwayed failed(about 90% failure rate). :frown:


I use just rye grains now(with 100% success).

I think those sunflower seed always killed it.

try just millet next time. :smile:

if you get the water content right and PC it well, it will be just fine.

Soaking is not necessary with WBS, I have never soaked once.

A quick rinse under the tap and a 45 minute simmer is all that is needed, drain for atleast 30 mins, pop in jars hey presto, perfectly hydrated WBS.

Hope that saves you some trouble.

HAPPY FUCKING HOLIDAYS!

when you are soaking the WBS you will find that the sunflower seeds float to the surface, you can scoop the majority of them right off the top.
