Sort a portion of grains (depending on the norm of each - zhmenka or 50-100 g on a kitchen scale): clean from broken pieces and specimens with black spots, then thoroughly rinse the seeds with running water through a sieve or in any other bowl. Pure pure wheat grains to the bottom of porcelain, glass or enameled dishes, pour running, preferably spring water (layer no more than 2 cm). Roomy dishes should be chosen so that the grains in it do not choke. You can cover the seed layer with wet gauze, I personally do not cover anything.

Toward evening, the liquid must be drained, and the grains washed well and returned back to the jar. The next morning, you need to rinse the grains again with running water and leave in a jar for a couple of hours.
