You can sprout quinoa in any container, I like to use glass mason jars. Soak 3 cups of quinoa in 5 cups of water for at least 6 hours. Drain sprouts. After that, rinse sprouts with fresh water at least twice a day until the tails are at least three times the size of the grain in length. Quinoa sprouts very quickly and should only take one day to sprout.
Dehydrate grains at a low temperature for 12 to 24 hours. Let grains cool for a few hours before grinding. I like to freeze my grains before grinding them.
In a grain mill, food processor, or vita-mix, grind grains. I used my food processor. It took 15 minutes to grind grains. The end product looks like fine ground cornmeal, with a light creamy color. I decided to sift the quinoa flour to obtain a fine flour for baking.
