why is just sprouted wbs not good to use? Is it at all useable? I was thinking i might as well instead of throwing it away.

Sugars are being converted to starches...so your losing nutes and getting grain that will clump easier.

I have used grain a few times that sprouted without any serious issues...if its minor sprouts, you'll probably be ok...but I'd suggest making up a good batch of jars, just in case.

Acually starches are being converted to sugars (mainly maltose) by amylase. Seeds are basically condensed and portable energy storage systems. Starch is more efficiently stored than mono/oligosaccharides (less waters of hyrdration needed).

But Like scat said, either way they should work fine, as long as they're not too far along.
