Contrary to popular opinion (including some professional/expert opinions) rice can be malted, and some varieties and strains of rice work much better than others. There are a few academic papers about malting rice and I have one somewhere that identifies a strain of rice particularly well suited to malting, but googling high and low I can't find any way to track down or purchase said strain of rice.

And to clarify, I am talking about actual malting as opposed to koji.
