This kit consists of one large colander with cover along + Storage options(2 x cotton bags, 2 x mesh bags, plastic bag clip +250ml of bio-activated organic nutrients along with a selection of seeds or not.
The idea here is that you Sprout the seeds in the mesh bag for the 1st 3 or 4 days, and when they are large enough you transfer them to the large colander for the final stage of greening and de-husking and then storage in the fridge. When the sprouts are ready you stop soaking and draining them and leave them to dry for a couple of days and then store them in the other mesh bag inside the cotton bag inside a plastic bag. You can then start sprouting again in your other mesh bag or if you have another spare colander you can begin this process earlier. This saves you the cost of extra small colanders with covers but not quite as convenient in my opinion, a little bit more fiddly and cleaning the mesh bag is a bit of a pain. Click to hide.

Here we see the steps involved in this process: – soaking the seeds overnight in bowl/cup with the nutrients supplied (warm water in winter). Rinse clean and allow for one day before soaking again in the nutrient solution for 10 to 20 minutes, rinse clean. In the next slide you'll see the process of putting a weight on the seeds/sprouts but each day, before or after soaking, put the sprouts in the grill and rinse clean and then add them back to the base bowl and apply the weight. Click to hide.

As previously described, use the inner bowl to rinse clean and then allow to drain for 5 minutes place back into the base bowl, apply a damp towel/cloth then place the stones which are inside the mesh bag spreading them out so they cover all of the sprouts (give the tea towel rinse clean each time, it will probably need a wash after each cycle). Click to hide

Here we see the final stage of removing the green husk and un-sprouted beans most of the green husk will float to the surface and can be easily pushed over the edge. This can be done in the base bowl and then while the sprouts are still in the water lift them out and put them into the inner bowl, this way the heavy un-sprouted seeds will remain in the bottom which you will discard. Next step is just to again cover with the wet tea towel and the stone weight, but this time do it with the sprouts in the inner bowl and then leave for a day or 2 so that the most of the water will have been absorbed by the sprouts, or drain through the grill (or you can just eat them at this stage) but if you want to store them then you need to get rid of the moisture and place them into the mesh bag inside the cotton bag, inside the sealed plastic bag where they will keep for at least a week.

Product Info...

Growing Super Mung bean Sprouts using one large 4 L colander +2 KG of pebbles to weigh the sprouts +1 KG of Mung bean and bio-activated super organic nutrients.

The trick to growing the mung bean in the long white format that you see in the supermarket is to convince the seed that it is growing from a long way underneath the soil and therefore creates a long stem in an effort to reach the sunlight. This can be done by putting it in a space that restricts its growth or similarly, as we have done here, placing a weight on top of the sprouts, along with the tea towel this serves the purpose of also keeping the light out i.e. so the leaf development is restricted.

We give you the option of purchasing this kit with or without the cover, if you are just doing mung beans then you do not need the cover, however if you want to use it to do normal sprouts then you can sprout the seeds in the mesh bag for say 3 – 4 days, and then empty them into the large colander and proceed with the sprouting process from there, in this case you will need the cover.

We also supply you with our sprouts/vegetable storage system this allows you to store your sprouts in the fridge for well over a week. The trick here is to get rid of most of the surface moisture from the sprouts before putting it inside the mesh bag, which goes inside the cotton bag, which goes inside the plastic bag which you seal. Every time you access the sprouts change the cotton bag and allow the damp one to dry out and also turn the plastic bag inside out. If you forget about it and the cotton bag remains moist it will become mouldy, however this is easily rectified by soaking in a bleach solution for a couple of hours and then rinsing clean (store the bleach solution and reuse as required, just topping up the strength when required this means you are never actually throwing it down the drain which is not good).

The kit is made up of:-

1 x Large Sprouting Bowl (with optional cover), inner grill bowl for drainage & outer for collection) These are quality 4L  made in Japan colanders, they can be used with seed sizes ranging down to that of Alfalfa, (not suitable for Cress, Mustard, Linseed) which are either too small or more likely, produce a mucous substance which causes rot, these are better grown as vertical sprouts see Micro-Greens. The beauty of using these colanders, apart from their many other uses when not sprouting, is that it makes it very easy to separate the husks from the seed, very important when it comes to storing the sprouts.

In the warmer climates or during summer, the trick is to keep your sprouts moist & cool, you can tilt the inner perforated Sprout container, so air circulates more freely, this gives the benefit of moisture being drawn to the edges & evaporated thus increasing cooling ie the advantage of sprouting in a bag, but also the advantages of soaking daily in organic nutrients. This is achieved by taking the inner part of the colander with the sprouts & placing them in a larger bowl, or tilting the inner part of the colander making sure the long edges line up (see pictures).

Pre-mixed Bio-active nutrients 250ml, made of –  Probiotics, Seaweed, Azomite, Dolomite, Magnesium Chloride ie fermenting makes the organic nutrients more bio-available to the sprouts and therefore to you, so you are eating not only a sweeter sprouts but they are many times more nutritious than a sprout just washed or soaked in water. You only use a very small amount of this each time you soak the sprouts, you can purchase this nutrient mix when you run out or you can buy the ingredients and make it yourself.

Storage system(2x cotton bags, mesh bag, plastic bag clip) This is the way that I now do it is using the combination of mesh bag, cotton bag, plastic bag. The trick being with this method is to make sure the sprouts are not too wet, so for the last 2 days you leave the sprouts at an angle in the large colander, this works really well all you have to do is place the grill section with the sprouts at an angle and across the base. After one day take the sprouts and turn them upside down so that the moisture at the bottom gets a chance to try out for the final day. You may also wish to add the lid during the night just to ensure there are no unwanted visitors to your sprouts during the evening. Then store in the mesh bag , place this inside the cotton bag then place inside a plastic bag, gently squeeze out most of the air and seal with the plastic clip. We give you 2 cotton bags because often you will find that the sprouts are still moist and the cotton bag will become wet, so you just swap the cotton bag and at the same time invert the plastic bag and allow the cotton bag to dry.

Weighting system i.e. 2 KG of pebbles, a mesh bag to contain the pebbles, a tea towel to cover the seeds/sprouts.

Seeds – 1 KG of Mung bean.

The advantages of our sprouting colanders:

1- The colanders come with their own drip bowl.

2- They have different drainage settings i.e. they can be set flat e.g. use for the 1st few days and then at an angle for even better drainage and aeration as the sprout mass becomes larger.

3- They also come with a flat perforated optional lid/cover

– ensures they do not dry out but still allowing good aeration

When the sprouts are ready you stop soaking and draining them and leave them to dry for a couple of days and then store them in the other mesh bag inside the cotton bag inside a plastic bag.

Vegetable storage kit

The kit consists of 2 cotton bags, one mesh bag, and a clip to seal plastic bags. Can be used to store leafy greens, sprouts, vegetables in general and can also be used as a shopping/carry bag also designed to fold into a small package.
This is the method I now use to store my sprouts and salad greens also other vegetables. Leafy greens & sprouts, it's best to store them 1st in a mesh bag, any damp material will not stick to the cotton bag (meaning you do not have to wash the cotton bag every time you change it). So the simple procedure is put the leafy greens inside the mesh bag, zip it up, place inside the cotton bag, then place inside a plastic bag that doesn't have any holes in it, gently squeeze the air out and secure with the clip.
