Just rinse off your grains with lukewarm water, and place them inside a jar filled with enough water to submerge the grains. Cover the jar with a special sprouting lid, or just wrap some cheesecloth around it with a rubber band. Let the grains soak for 24 hours, preferably in a dark place like a cabinet where the sun cannot reach it. After 24 hours, drain the water and remove the grains from the jar.

Place the grains back in the jar while still moist, lay the jar on its side, and cover them again. You will need to take out the grains and rinse them again 2 times per day until you notice them beginning to sprout. This process usually takes 2 to 3 days.
