        I agree, I just wondered why they use iron tablets, as you can't get any blacker than jet black with bi carb.

          I'm old school mate soak the hemp for 24 hours totally covered in water in the pan. Next day add a tablespoon of bicarbonate and bring to the boil then let it simmer till the majority have white shoots showing. Turn off the heat and leave it to cool but still continue to cook then bag up and freeze. Drain off the water and put it in a 4 pint milk bottle in the bait fridge to mix with the groundbait. Job done
