      Regarding malting (an area I've not done myself) - take a look at the Files
      section of the Biofuel newsgroup at Onelist :
      http://www.onelist.com/group/biofuel/ They have there a good text called
      the "Alcohol Fuel Manual" which is really good & informative. Chapter 6
      covers malting. There they reckon that "green malt" (undried) is fine to
      use, and is actually more potent (so cousin "Bill" is right), however it
      should be used immediately or it will rot - it has to be dried if you want
      to store it. Guessing here, but a hybrid should be the same to use - its
      the action of sprouting which causes it to generate the enzymes that
      convert the starch to fermentable sugars. Its just a matter of the level
      of enzymes you get - all cereal grains produce them, but barley produces
      the most.
