    I have been sprouting BOSS, and Oats for my chickens. Has anyone given the rinse water to the chickens. I wonder if it has vitmains and enzymes in it.

    I definitely would not do that. One of the primary reasons for rinsing while you are sprouting is to rinse off mold/mildew because it is dangerous to ingest that. When we sprout, we first soak the seeds in water with grapefruit seed extract added to help prevent mold. That helps a lot, but we still discard all the water. I suppose you could use the water for watering your garden or something along those lines so that it is not wasted.

    I would not do that either.. I consider it waste water. Maybe put it in the garden or the compost pile.
