I know I've seen a thread or two about other HBT members growing or malting their own barley. Although, I'm not sure they ever reported back with their final results.
If you do follow this through, I'd love to hear about your reults. I'm in Michigan as well, so if I ever move into a place with enough space, I'd be in a similar climate to yours and would benefit from anything you end up learning from the process.
