To determine if WBS moisture content is right. Pick up a few differing grains. Mash between thumbnail & forefinger. If they mash / cut in half - moisture content is good to GO.

Drain until WBS doesnt drip, then let it drain a bit more. Or, bump strainer on edge of sink. If no drips, it's good to GO.

Hey, I had a problem with my WBS being too damp the first time I tried and got this advice from some of the people on here. Maybe it will help you out. One, if you are draining a lot of WBS, take a spoon and stir it up while it's draining. This will get any moisture trapped in the center out. When you think it's drained completely, if you shake your strainer and any water drips out, it's not drained completely. Good Luck.

Stir, wait. Stir, wait. Trust instinct, then load! If you just let it sit there and drain, you can end end up with uneven moisture content.

And thanks go to Diver, where I got the stirring hint. Thanks Diver. I know how you feel agar, did the same thing last night, but mine is a Long Beach hangover.

i soaked wbs for 24 hours and it absorb little if any water. So i brought it to a boil then it sucked up the water. This proved to me that soaking and simmering is a waste of time.

The 5 gallon bucket above was filled 2/3rds full of DRY WBS/Rye mix, water was added, seed EXPANDED in volume by 1/3rd of what it was dry & seed filled the bucket. Seed/grain expansion was caused it soaking up moisture.

any tricks to get it to suck up the water. For me it was a time consuming venture. Soaked seeds for 24 hours. Once that didnt work i simmered for 2 hours. Then i scooped the seeds into the jars which was messy. Cooked for an hour. Or i could put three cups of seed and 2 cups of water into a jar and cook it, this take about 1.5 hours and isnt messy
