How To Prepare Perfect Particles

Our guide to preparing particle ready for your spring campaign!

Right now is the time to be carrying out your prep for the forthcoming spring. Batch cooking chilis and soups, hand-rolling your special hookbaits, respooling your reels and restocking your tea and coffee supplies. A lot of us also prepare particle ready for the start of new campaigns, to help you out with this we have put together a 'how to' on preparing your particle perfectly for spring!

TIGERS: Pre-soak for 24hrs and then bring to the boil and simmer for 20-40 minutes.  

MAPLES: Pre-soak for 24hrs and boil for 20-30 minutes. After boiling, maples can be allowed to ferment if they are left in their own water for several days. To speed up this process, add a tablespoon of sugar during the boiling process.

BRAZILS: Pre-soak for 24hrs and boil for 45 minutes (this is crucial otherwise they float). Follow those guidelines and you should achieve a nut which will sink very slowly.

TARES: Pre-soak for 12-14hrs and then bring to the boil and simmer for 20-30 minutes. 

HEMP: Pre-soak for 12-14hrs and then bring to the boil and simmer until it splits (approximately 30 mins)

GROATS: No pre-soaking necessary, just bring to the boil and simmer for a minute. For best results, leave in water for 12hrs, stirring occasionally.
