Preparing Wheat

1. I use a large plastic tub that they sell suet balls for birds in. I put 2-3 pints of wheat into this.

2. I now pour a full kettle of boiling water slowly over the wheat.

4. Put the lid on and leave for at least 24 hours, preferably 36-48hours.

6. Drain off the water (save it for groundbait if you like)
