Is it MALTED barley?? If not, you'll be using it for soups and such.

Black unmalted barley is used all the time in stouts. There's black malt and black barley. One is malted the other isn't.

Or use it in soup. I never thought about using malt or barley in soup. Guess I know what's for dinner tomorrow!

I'm not brewing stouts, so...

We've used regular barley in soups before. Been a while since we did so, but it can be good when done right (as with most things).

Won't the soup taste like coffee and burnt bread? I'd use it in place of black patent or roasted barley in a stout. Whether it's malted or not makes no difference at this point, as any enzymes were destroyed during the kilning process. You could also grind it to flour and use a little of it in dark rye bread or Russian black bread.

it looks like some of you haven't tried beef and barley soup. i highly recommend it.
ill take this as good news as i love stout.
its not malted i don't believe. it was packaged with the intent of cooking. dont think people cook with malt but i could be wrong.

Taste some, if it's roasted it will work fine in most stouts. I wouldn't cook with it, and I can say with certainty that beef barley soup with roasted barley in it would be pretty foul.

But if it were foul, wouldn't than make it a chicken and barley soup?
