The sunflower seeds you can strain out.Just soak it over night then simmer for 30 minutes and drain for 20 minutes and then load and pc for 90 minutes at 15 psi.Thats what I did with my latest casing of gT on white millet.







Hope that helps!

:cool: :thumbup:

looks like it should work just fine. when you soak the seeds, the sunflower seeds will float to the top of the water, at which point you can scoop most of them off. a small number of sunflower seeds left in will not hurt it.

Taken from 6T WBS Tek
There is no need to remove any floating husks, or sunflower seeds. These add lignin ( a good thing) & do not harbor any more possible contams than does the millet. It is all going to get thoroughly sterilized - anyway

Butternut squash are softer than acorn or other types of squash, which makes them easier to cut and prepare.
