Don't use it as a specialty grain. That would be a waste. Either save it and make enough for all grain batch or do a mini experiment and see if you can convert it.

Did you worry about the cyanide in the acropsires/rootlest at all?

No, they came off almost completely, either way, it's only in the mash, I won't be eating the acrospires or rootlets

I really need to start my malting experiments again. I've got 8 lbs of quinoa that I know I can malt, 6 lbs of buckwheat that I know I can malt and a few lbs of millet that I need to give another run at.

How is the malting coming along?

Is cyanide created when sorghum is malted?

Yes, but it's mostly in the shoots.

I have malted a small test batch of quionoa, and that works pretty well. A couple things that I noticed when I did my experiment:

There are different kinds (colors) of qionoa with different qualities. I used the approach that the "Life's a Garden" author used and it worked pretty well. But the quinoa I used was a blend of the red and white quinoa, and they sprouted at different rates. Next time I will only use a single color.

The quinoa seemed take a while to sprout, not sure if that is a trait of the quinoa or if I had them in too cool of a place.

Quinoa is a pain in the butt to toast in the oven because they are so small. Using a screen may help with this, I used a sheet tray and a silpat.

I don't know if a screen actually helps in the toasting. When I toasted some grains with my screen it seemed to take a lot longer to get close to the color I wanted. If I use a plain roasting sheet they get darker and in a shorter amount of time, but YMMV.

Nice job though, I need to get around to malting some more. I have all this sorghum just sitting around.
