So my friend gave me a 5 gallon full of plain old barley. Unmalted. What can I use it for?

Here is what BeerSmith has to say about raw barley:
"Raw, unmalted barley can be used to add body to your beer. Use in homebrew requires very fine milling combined with a decoction or multi-stage mash. Performs best when used in small quantities with well modified grains." It also suggests using a max of 15% of it in a batch.

I would make my own roasted barley. Of course, I drink a lot of stout, so a five gallon bucket would suit me...
