Hi all,

I am planning on cooking heaps of hemp today ready for the 16th and was wondering if I can store it in a bucket covered with water or will it go funky and put the fish off?

Fridge or freezer !!


The two best times to go fishing are when it's raining and when it's not

I always freeze mine, but as funky as you can get it doesn't put the fish off anyway.

In three days it wall almost certainly start to ferment and go funky.

Either delay the cook or split it up into small batches that will quickly cool to room temperature and then fridge/freeze it.

When its cooked take it from the water with a sieve and drop it into a bowl full of ice and water ,it will stop it cooking further and going soft
I never used to boil it i just took a cup full and put it in a 1.8ltr flask and covered it with boiling water at night,rested the lid on the flask (do not screw it down) and in the morning it was perfect
Unfortunately i once opened a jar of cooked wheat used a bit then put it away until i discovered it several months later ,on sniffing it i almost puked!
Hemp goes off after a couple of days so fresh is best but you can rough liquidise it and put it in groundbait but better liquidise it then dried and then used in groundbait

Cheers folks. I have a bait fridge in the garage which gets mega cold so I think I will take the shelves out and store the bucket in there.

Addicted,

 

Slimeball hemp is better for the fish.  I'm not sure if it will offset the inconvenience it causes the angler.  I mean catching fish is just so important - then other considerations must be taken into account.  Otherwise we would all be using n-butyric acid in our baits.

Freeze it. 

Session-sized carrier bags full, will keep forever in the bottom of the freezer.
