I tend to buy from my local pet shop. They'll get it in for me if I buy a full sack. They generally supply me with Bucktons. As for prepping it, I chuck what I need into a cool box and cover it with boiling water. Make sure that it's well covered with water and add a bit extra water. Give it all a good stir, put the lid on the cool box and leave it for a day or two. I certainly don't faff about boiling the bejesus out of it these days.

Don't throw away hemp water (water hemp cooked in).
It's the best additive out there.
Use it to mix grounbait, soak pellets, pumping expanders or hydrating boiles.
If not needed put in freezer bags and freeze until needed.

Soak in water with a teaspoon of baking soda (Sodium Bicarbonate) overnight - then boil for about 20 mins and let cool naturally with the lid on the pan... check and if not quite right, then boil another 10 mins, let cool.. repeat if necessary but very rarely needed.

Get mine from a farm suppliers (TFM: http://www.tfmsuperstore.co.uk/ at 33.75 for 15Kg but don't think they ship it out - need to visit store)

I never put anything into my hemp until right near the end otherwise it stops the seeds from splitting. If you want the hemp to darken and go shiny, try adding a little sugar near the end once the seeds have split and boil for a few minutes longer.
hope this helps

I use the scaled up flask approach, as borrowed from someone on here years back. I bought a plastic cool box from a car boot sale for a whole pound. Stick as much hemp in as you want, cover with boiling water, leave overnight, use.
