I'm new to the forum, brewed a couple batches in the past. I have always been interested in foraging, I collect mushrooms, berries, edible plants and such.
What I was considering was using Phragmites, a common reed (and pesky invasive), to malt and, hopefully produce a batch of beer with. Edible plants books say you can make flour with it in the same way you could with wheat or barley, so naturally, I immediatly thought it might be fun to try with beer. Malting grains is a process I have never done, though I have done a bit of reading about it and think that it should be possible.
Has anyone here experimented with that sort of thing or just have any comments or tips? Think it is even worthwhile to try? I would love to hear anything you guys think about this.
