I just started roasting my own malts using THIS guide. He even shows how to make crystals and special b, by partially starting the conversion process and then roasting the grain with the sugars present.

I did two batches of beer last thursday with home roasted malt. I did a medium amber, and darker amber and even toasted up a pound of instant oats.

This was medium amber roasted iirc 30 minutes at 350 degrees.



The second beer got it's color from only the toasted malt,

8.0 oz Home Toasted Dark Amber (65.0 SRM)
8.0 oz Home Toasted Light Amber (35.0 SRM)

The color of the beer was just amazing...

The first runnings-


Second runnings-


The final color after 2 rounds of sparging-

It's addicting once you start doing it, isn't it? The smell alone makes you want to. As soon as my bulk grain buy comes in, I'm going to take at least 10 pounds and do nothing but toast my own.

I tested this out about 3 months ago. Used 1 lb 2 row in a 350 oven for 45 minutes stirring ever 15 minutes. Then cooled for 24 hours and used it a brown ale. Wonderful nutty flavor brown ale best brown I have done. I am using it in an oatmeal stout now.

Revvy,

Do you rap those fermenters in a towel or blanket most of the time? No ill effects from the light?

Revvy,

Thanks for the link to Jason (Barleypopmaker's) blog. I am going to buy a 50 lb sack of base malt, and that is going to be my last purchase for awhile. (luckily I have a bunch of hops and also a lot of washed yeast). This post's timing was perfect for me. I was going to be limited to SMaSH'es (not so bad) but now I can brew many more styles in the upcoming months.
Albert

Made a pale mild today with 2 lbs of home toasted 2 row. Cooked at 325 for 30 minutes and it didn't LOOK a whole lot different, but the smell and taste were divine. Bicuity and slightly nutty with a bit of toastiness. Hopefully that transfers over into the flavor of the finished product and gives a nice body to it. Its my first mild and I'm pretty stoked. Getting a bit tired of being half in the bag by the time the wife gets home from work.
