I want to try sprouting but the only seed mix in my area has corn, groats and rape seed. Are these okay to soak/rinse with the seed mix ? (Ralph moore seed mix - White Proso Millet, Canary, Oat Groats, Striped Sunflower, Cracked Yellow Corn, Canaola Seed, Red Millet and Safflower Seed)

Well this seed mix has no perservatives or anything added to these seeds so I thought they would be okay but I didn't realize it had cracked dried corn pieces and groats. Are these okay to soak with the rest of the seeds?? I think I read somewhere groats are okay to be soaked but I want to be sure? The cost of buying seeds online in canada is outrageous. Shipping is rediculously overpriced.
Also is heinz pure apple cider vinegar okay to spray on teh sprouts before serving ? (I read organic but I dont know if its organic??)
I also am attempting to sprout seeds for the first time, but I am very nervous about it.
I am scared it will spoil and I won't know if it is spoiled or not.
I don't know if I need to use another (clean strainer) each time I rinse or not?
Is it okay to just leave the strainer drain over a bowl ? Or does the strainer need to be covered?
Also, I read on different sites that using organic apple cider vinegar is a good way to remove any bacteria on the sprouts, but I read different uses. Please tell me which one is appropiate =(
1. Spray the seeds with apple cider vinegar before serving the sprouts.
2. Soak the sprouts for 2-5 minutes in 1 part apple cider vinegar and 5 parts water. Rinse afterwards then serve.
3. Soak in apple cider vinegar for 10-15 minutes then serve (Did not say dilution , if any)
Should I boil the sprouts to kill any bacteria? If so, for how long?
I have been attempting my first sprout and it is my 2nd day and some of the seeds (only about 10%) have tips but not all. I was reading it only takes 2 days for the tails to come but most of my seeds dont have tails . I guess I will wait until tomorrow. So far I am using the soak for 10 hours then rinse every 12 hours method. During the day I try rinsing every 3-6 hours if I can.
Can someone give me a for sure guide to know if the sprouts are gone bad?
Those links I have already read, none say anything about organic apple cidar vinegar, if you have to switch strainers every rinse, if you cover your sprouts and it also says nothing about if you can boil them or not.
