Im going to use wheat to pre-bait swins for bream and want to know the easiest ways to do this. I also want to know how long the prepaired bait will last and if it can be frozen for later use.

Has anybody added flavours during cooking or when freezing and what were the results.

Cheers for any help. [:H]

It's far quicker if you do it in a cool box, add any flavourings during the soak. If done correctly it should increase 3 times it's size

I'm with stretch on this one, soak the grain for 24hrs in cold water.
Drain it and put in a cool box, then cover it well with boiling water.
The cool box stops the water cooling too quickly so you get a longer cooking time.
I do my hemp in the same way.

I cook my wheat (and rice too) along with my hemp... pads out the more expensive main ingredient and takes in its flavour...

Also for pre baiting use vitalin original, goat mix and sugar beet.
sugar beet is brilliant for bulking out as once its soaked it swells up to about 5 times or more of its original volume, also it has molasses already in it, so no need to add any for extra sweetness. And the drained off excess liquid is good for mixing up groundbait.
