Good sprouter - easy to use - not massive capacity
on 14 December 2008
I'm pretty new to sprouting and recently bought two of these plus two hemp sprouting bags. I'm writing this review after just placing an order for my third Biosnacky so obviously I'm happy with it! The sprouter is easy to use and keep clean - most types of seeds need to be soaked overnight first and then need "watered" twice a day. Just watch if you're in a rush in the morning as it takes about 4/5 minutes for the water to filter down from the top level to the collection tray at the bottom - this water can then be used to feed plants/wheatgrass. Doesn't take up too much space - roughly 20-22cm diameter. It's usually ok to stack more than three trays as well. Haven't had many problems with mould - it's easy to spot when it does come, and not to be confused with the white "furry" legs that many sprouts develop - best to sterilise the trays after every few crops. The only reason I haven't given the sprouter a full five stars is that, well I've had to buy three to be able to grow a reaonable amount of sprouts, as most seeds take 4/5 days to sprout. So if you eat a lot of sprouts you'll probably need a few of these! Sprouting bags are also a great job by the way. Not sure if they sell them here - if not try energiseforlife.
