How to soak Dengie Alfa-Beet:

Dengie Alfa-Beet is easy to use as it soaks to a mash much more quickly than conventional sugar beet pellets – when soaking in hot water it is ready in 15 mins, alternatively in cold water it takes 2 hours or can be left through the day or night to soak – whichever is more convenient! For soaking, we recommend one part product to three parts water.

One large Stubbs scoop of dry Dengie Alfa-Beet pellets = 1.6Kg

One large Stubbs scoop of soaked Dengie Alfa-Beet holds 0.5kg of dry matter if soaked at a 1 part Dengie Alfa-Beet to 3 parts water ratio.

Ingredients: Alfalfa, unmolassed sugar beet.
