- Hi again Snow,
Yes, you can use pearl barley. Its nothing more then regular barley
that has had the husks removed, then steamed to remove the bran, and is
then polished or "pearled".
However, it is not malted and does not contain any of the alpha and beta
amylase enzymes required to convert the grain starches to sugars.
Therefore, your going to have to either add sugar ala the UJSSM method
or use the BA - GA-100 enzymes that Mason uses and is familar with.
Vino es Veritas,
Jim aka Waldo.
