Yes, I did it when I first started in the late 80s. I found it to be less convenient so I use dextrose now.
In fact, I seem to remember that at the time one meaning of "all-grain" implied kraueseing; there were no non-grain sugars in the beer at all. Perhaps I am mis-remembering that, but I think I read that usage in zymurgy in that timeframe.
