    The Chinese make a lot of clear grain sorghum spirit. They do not malt but use natural enzyme producing moulds on cooked grain.

Here in South Africa, a malted sorghum is used as part of traditional African beer (Basically cornmeal + malted sorghum allowed to ferment) and its very easy to get a hold of cheaply (unlike malted barley).

        I am keen to give it a try, just wondered if anybody had tried it before?
