Yes you soak millet.
Soak for 24 hours.
All cubes are grain lovers.

You dunk after the 1st flush.

Don't confuse grains with BRF.

Yes you can case grain.
Have a look at this pic.

See the tray?
Fill it with distilled water.
Let it set overnight.(I use a cooler to set my trays in)
Drain the water from the tray/s.
Then back in the FC for another flush :D
Hope that helps! :)

Yes the container.
After the 1st flush the mycellium has a tendency to eat at the tray and some water will come out.
But if it doesn't then take your hand and place it on the sub and tilt the tray till the water runs out.
You will want to wear a plastic glove on the hand that holds the sub.
Make sure it's sterile of course :)
Drain the water then toss it back in the fc.

When the trays get the "holes" from the myc in them you will need a container to put the trays in while you dunk them.
Thats why I use a cooler.
Even if the Myc eats at the tray you will still need to drain the excess water out from the dunk.
