Are millet, milo, quinoa, buckwheat, armaranth, etc, acceptable as stand alone base malts? I wanted to make sure they have enough diastatic power to convert themselves w/o having to add something. The plan is to malt 5 or 10 lbs of each of the different grains and use them to make a SMASH. Also, I have never tried to figure manually my OG (Beersmith makes me lazy). If my system has a given eff of 70%, what would my OG's be with the different grains as base malts?
The malting process is a little up in the air right now, but I'll figure that out later!
