I always fail at sprouting seeds
They always smell stinky as if they don't get enough air, and become anaerobic. This time I just soaked for 8 hours, drained and left in open container, and rinsed once a day. They still smelled, and then actually dried overnight, and all the little taproots had dried up.
Im using barley. Please share methods or insights, I don't know what Im doing wrong. Guess I will keep trying with lids on and off, maybe shorter initial soak, maybe a heatpad, maybe a thin layer on a baking sheet,
