Feed Barley

11 Mar

Update: I just brewed with 11lbs of this malt and achieved full conversion in one hour, with 80% efficiency, not bad! I brewed an IPA with Galaxy hops, I’ll let you know how it turns out.

I get a lot of questions about feed barley. Basically I wouldn’t recommend it, (see older post) but here I am malting 44lbs of the stuff all at once.

    Hey Demi, I did make a lager with feed barley a year ago, turned out fine but it was darker than I thought it would be so I didn’t write a post about it, nothing off that I could detect. You just have to factor in your recipe that you will have about 20% unmalted raw barley in there. Cheers!
