Yeah, I know its crazy, and I know I can get malted grains any any homebrew shop, and I should support my local store... I know!

BUT, I wanna make my own malt at home. Can anyone provide details or point me in the right direction for soaking, germination, and kilning time and methods.
oh and..

American Macro Lagers suck!

There was a discussion on this topic on Basic Brewing Radio maybe a year or so ago. Go to and peruse the archives - good information in that show, even if the interest is theoretical (as it is with me), not wanting to actually MALT, per se.
