    Might have to be quick - seller says "Almost Gone" but that could be just sales pitch??

    and how does the seller know...My experience tells me that there are two types....One that splits, and one that don't, even after soaking overnight and boiling for about six hours...Oh....and by the way...It can't split incorrectly

    1) Seller MAY have tried boiling a sample!!!
    2) Seller has 100% feedback rating - + Life's full of risk innit.

    Now I've never boiled my own Hemp, I've always bought mine ready to go.

    Wonder if half a teaspoon of Bicarb' would help?? It works wonders for Mushy Peas.

    I have used bi carb many times and it dont seem to make any difference to be honest, but then again i always give it a sprinkle of brown sugar once washed off which may help the taint if it does taint it.
    If you soak your hemp for a couple of hours theres no need for bi carb (if the hemp is fresh)

    the bi carb is used to make the hemp go dark, if you think it taints the bait use iron tablets this will do the same thing, hemp that wont split is normally old , look at it and see if there are any slightly green seeds(fresh) this will tell you if its old as old hemp looses its colour and gets lighter as it dehydrates /ages.
