Here in England I malted some millet myself and did a 1 litre test with it; tried to do a stepped mash, added a bit of sugar to get the gravity up, hop extract, amylase, pectoalse, nutrient and yeast.
Agreeably surprised by how good it was.

whats up guys. back to the potato thing; what if you boiled the potatoes (steeped w/e to get the starchy water) then added beano. doesn't that break down starches? or does it break down something else?

sorghum is a grain and processed in a similar fashion to molasses

Thanks for this, Can't wait to try this out. It's nice to know that everyone can enjoy their beer even though they are allergic to certain substances like gluten.

Hey guys, I tried and failed at malting millet; whats the secret to your success? I used a cooler with a screen in it, drained it twice a day for 3 days, although it kept heating up - maybe I should have left the lid open, and put it outside? What is the ideal temp for malting millet anyway, and does millet heat up by itself as it is soaking? Would aerating the water help? Do you put them out to dry before, or after they start sprouting (mine never even started)? Is millet from the Bulk Barn okay to use? I get the feeling it has to be done very carefully.

I'm sure this has been considered, but can you use beans as a fermentable? I really don't like the taste of surghum, trying to think of something else! Not sure what abean brew would taste like .. .or smell like!

If you did manage to make a beer out of beans, I fail to see from where the malt flavor would come. I'm not saying you shouldn't give it a go, but I really don't see it being beer. Maybe it'd be in it's own class of alcoholic beverages like sake. Unrelated to this, equating or drawing a parallel between oats and quinoa/ amaranth isn't perfect. I see how nutritionally speaking they made be made up of roughly the same macronutrients (carbs, fats, and proteins), but the analogy stops there. Quinoa, though higher in protein, is not going to give you a remotely close flavor profile to oats. It doesn't lend itself to a creamy mouthfeel, but helps with head retention. Quinoa can also give similar characteristics to the variations of roasted barley as long as similar roasting procedures are followed.

DougmanXL, you need to make sure that the millet you are using has not been treated in any way.
I know that any millet coming into New Zealand is irradiated so it can't sprout and is therefore useless as far as malting is concerned.
If the millet didn't even start to sprout I would say there is something wrong with it and you should try a different supplier.

Yeah it didn't sprout at all... stupid bulk barn probably does that. Thanks, guess I'll have to try and find another supplier...
