all goes well, I will be teaching Grain Malting at a local agriculture college in 2014 while
operating my malting business. If they actually setup a full malting
course, students will be instructed on how to use malts in food and brewing
don't know where you are located, but in the U.S. there are animal feed stores
that sell bulk grain to farmers. One of these bulk feed stores is my
supplier, and they purchase their grain directly from local
trying to advertise in this group, you might want to check out "Grain Kit - Have
it your way" on Ebay. A Grain Kit allows a person to order all of their
grains and malts they need to brew a 10 gal batch of beer or 5 to 7 gal wort for
spirits. If that Grain Kit is too large for you, send a message to the
seller, and they will most likely be able to supply you with a smaller amount of
2 row barley grain.
you live outside of the U.S., you will have problems obtaining some grains.
If you can't locate barley, you can use alfalfa sprouts, chick peas, or
mung beans as having the same large amounts of enzymes as barley. If you
can obtain any untreated grain seeds, you can make malts from that grain.
It just takes a lot more of that malted grain to turn starches into sugar.
Hope this helps.

Wanted: Malted grain testes
Robert. I've been trying to find a source for unmalted barely to try
my own hand at malting barely just for a test batch or two of homebrew.
I've been having trouble finding a source. Local homebre shops say
they just dont have a source or demand for un malted, and the big companies
aren't responding to email, or calls. I certainly don't have the
experience to be a tester for you, but I'm interested getting some unmalted
grain from you, or curious what your source is.
