Wheat sprouts grew nicely, with about 1/2 inch of grass, very sweet. Presumably one could live on them, but I'm getting hungry for some meat.

The radiccio kraut didn't work. It had a nasty smell and hadn't pickled properly. I threw it out, and will use real cabbage next time.

Small scale brewers note: a #6 or #6.5 bung will fit gallon-sized Carlo Rossi bottles. #7 or #8 will fit the wide-mouth half-gallon bottles a lot of apple and grape juice comes in. The guy at Beverage People told me the s-shaped airlocks aren't nearly as good as the 3-piece design; he only carries the former because of a winemaker who insists on them. I bought one anyway, to compare.
