About Sproutman's Sprout Bags:
Why a Bag?
People often assume sprouts are best grown in jars. Indeed, in the hands of a diligent gardener, jars can successfully grow several varieties of sprouts. But jars were never designed for sprouting. Their popularity has more to do with their wide availability and free cost than with their merits as a gardening tool. Any serious sprout grower will soon run into the many limitations of jars as sprouting devices. While there are other types of sprouters available with different features, the sprout bag is a perfect substitution for the jar, with several advantages. A little sprout history lesson follows.
The Dark Ages of Sprouting
- Never designed for sprouting.
- Poor air circulation. Small opening limits air.
- Incomplete drainage. Stagnant air & water promotes mold growth.
- Open end requires cheesecloth, rubber bands, screens, or lids.
- Cheesecloth over mouth collects bacteria.
- Not usable for sprouting many vegetables, large beans, and gelatinous seeds (chia).
- Prone to breakage. Difficult to transport. Accidents ruin crop.
- Take up valuable kitchen space.
- Time consuming 4 steps. Fill up, pour out, tilt at an angle, drain.
- Cumbersome to handle multiple jars. Difficult to get hands in and out.
- Takes up precious refrigerator space and shelf space. Fixed size.

Sprout bags are perfect for making delicious sprout bread.
Sproutman's Basic Sprout Bread
Soak 1 cup of hard wheat in a jar for 8-10 hours. Sprout in your Sprout Bag for 2 days. Examine the seed for the shoot. The shoot is short, thick and grows in the opposite direction of the hairlike roots. In order to achieve the desired consistency, the shoot must be the length of the berry. Longer makes the bread too chewy. Now grind the sprouts in a food processor, a Champion juicer (homogenizer section), a wheatgrass juicer, or a cast iron meat grinder. Do not use a blender or Vita Mix. It is crucial that the resulting "sprout dough" is ground to a smooth paste. If necessary, reinsert the sprouts for a second grind. Form a 12 x 3 inch loaf by hand. Wet your hands constantly while shaping. Lay the loaf on a seeded cookie sheet. Sesame or poppy seeds keep the bread from sticking. Bake slowly at 250 degrees F. for approximately 2-4 hours. Lift the bread off the baking tray momentarily after 1-2 hours of baking. This avoids sticking. Bread is done when the underside is firm and no longer mushy. The inside will remain moist while the top of the bread may harden.
