Default Best book on malting?

Hi all,

Does anybody know if there's a 'bible' on malting (for pros and home malters alike) out there?

Thanks!

Malts and Malting by Dennis E Briggs is pretty thorough.

Whisky: Technology, Production, and Marketing had some malting info too.

Having the right grain is just as important as the malting process.

Thanks!

I'm not really interested in whisky. Just malts and the science behind malting and kilning, especially in beer making.
