    I just made a lovely brown loaf using some carafa special 3 and brown malt with my bread flour.
    Does anyone else use left over malted grain? Crushing the grain into flour (I used my pestle
    and mortar)...

    Is there a way to add something to the recipe to keep it from getting too dry? Oats? Carapils?

    It sounds like you'll end up with a porter style. It wont be roasty though. I think you should

    Broken Pizza stone, that's two gone in the last couple of months. (UK)The stones that I've
    broken, I treated them carefully, were just cheap disks of fired clay/earthen wear. OK the
