Default How do I make roasted barley?

I just love this forum! Better than all my books and cheaper, too!

I have a recipe for oatmeal stout that calls for roasted barley (1 lb.). Can I make that myself at home from regular pale malt (presumably in the oven but hey, if I have to build a fire in the living room those are the breaks)? Can anyone give me a procedure for making a pound of it?

Thanks again.

Roasted barley is not malted first. You need to start with raw barley.

probably a lot easier to buy a pound at the LHBS.

I'm not against toasting your own grains, but I feel like it should only be done to fill a gap, when a commercial grain doesn't exist or is just too hard to get.

Unfortunately for me my local HBSC doesn't have it.

So you have the right hobby...but the wrong HBS. I have never heard of ANY HBS...even the smallest hole-in-the-wall-only-open-2-days-a-week variety...that didn't have roasted barley. They should not get a dime of your money; the internet is your new best friend.

to name a few of the more popular choices.

Yeah, I wouldn't attempt to 'roast' malt in the oven to get roasted malt. I have tried to increase the color of pale ale and rye malt with very limited success. If you have to order it online, like the others, I would suggest doing that instead of roasting.

Years ago, one of my "beer in a box" kits came with plain barley. The instructions said to "place in oven until dark brown. Remove, and crush with rolling pin".

Not my best beer, but I did find the process kind of interesting. But toasting malt would produce black/chocholate malt, not roasted barley? That might be OK if you are going for a london-style stout, verses an irish-style stout?
