    The minimum temperature for barley to sprout is 3-5 C. so your refrigerator might work OK. Its
    preferred temperature is 20 C. so it should still sprout in your warm temperature. It will take
    longer to...

    Is it worth risking losing a batch of beer over, plus the fermenting vessel?? IMO, it's not.
    You could get injured by a stressed carboy, especially if you use a glass one. You could get
    stress fractur...

    I am trying to malt some barley and it goes well but, when it is time for germination it begins
    to smell sour then gets mold later on. We usually have a temperature of 25c to 32c.We do not

    While sprouting, spray the grain with a .1% solution of hydrogen peroxide. It helps with
    sprouting and inhibits growth of nasties.That is a great idea! I will give it a go! Thank you!

    Has anyone tried using a sprouter on barley after the steeping process for germination? Do you
    think it will be a good idea?I'm really new to malting and I have been trying to malt some
    barley. I had ...

    Right after cleaning the grain, I soaked the grain in water for 6hrs and let the it rest for
    8hrs for 2days but, during the last part of the steeping I had it soaked for maybe 8hrs. and a
    half or 9hrs...

    Did you see all the warnings in that thread? You'll need to hunt down a threaded top/opening
    plastic water bottle/carboy to begin with. Plus, do all the modifications to it. THEN be super
    careful to N...

    depends on what you are using for a carboy. Most are not designed to hold pressure and may

    interesting. ...
