vinegar smell normal for sprouting rye?
I'm looking for feedback from those folks with experience sprouting rye.
I'm currently 4 days in to the process for sprouting rye berries for diastatic malt, and for the for the past 2 days there is a distinct odor of vinegar coming from the sprouts. Visually, I see nothing wrong. I commonly make sprouts and have never encountered this odor before, but I've never sprouted rye before either.
Is it normal?
BTW, they are now in the dehydrator, they haven't developed roots the length of the berry yet, but 4 days is plenty of time for that to happen, so I cut it short.
