First I would like make some comments before going on to the process.
I have posted this tek on a few other sites over the years, so some of you already know it. Also, if you look in the Topia's archives you will see that there was a guy steeping one jar at a time. Plus, shortly after I posted this to the first site Violet was posting about steeping RGS at yet another site. Since I started doing it this a few years ago I have never done it any other way, and I've prepped WBS just about every way that I have read about (other experienced cultivators have told me the same thing).
This thing is almost idiot proof, and I should know. Only once have I had to toss a batch, and I blame it on the WBS being loaded with cracked corn and probably corn dust as well. But it does work with some cracked corn if the WBS is rinsed before and after being hydrated.
Throw some WBS in cooler
Add equal amount of boiling water.
Cover and let steep for 90 minutes
That is how easy it really is.
Cue's Steep Tek:
Pure 20 pounds of WBS into a large cooler
Pour in 5 gallons of boiling water.
Strain out the floating sunflower seeds, stir and repeat. But you don't have to be anal about getting them all out.
Cover and let steep for 90 minutes.
