Well, I remember there being an article in BYO about it but I can't find it now.

Here is the reference, but they don't have it linked anymore.

Make Your Own Malt, Brew Your Own magazine (ISSN 1081826X), August 1997, pp. 32-36.

(the link WAS Brew Your Own: The How-To Homebrew Beer Magazine - Oops... we've rearranged a bit!)
Beer, happy Produce of our Isle/Can sinewy Strength impart,
And wearied with Fatigue and Toil/Can cheer each manly Heart.
Labour and Art upheld by Thee/Successfully advance,
We quaff Thy balmy Juice with Glee/And Water leave to France.
Genius of Health, thy grateful Taste/Rivals the Cup of Jove,
And warms each English generous Breast/With Liberty and Love!
(Rev James Townley, 1751)

I know people who've done some specialty malts soaking the grain in baking pans and drying in their clothes dryer (sewn up in a pillow case), but 1500 lbs seems a little much for that.
Conical 1 - Empty
Conical 2 - Empty
Carboys - None

Secondaries - None
Lagering in Kegs - None

Kegged: Afterburner Cream Ale, 70/70 IPA, Golden Oat Stout, BLC
Bottled: Oaked Bourbon Porter
Planned: Looking for ideas
