Caramel malt success!

Inside should appear glassy, this one may still have some starch in the center.

 I definitely need to get some proper textbooks on malting. There’s just too much differing information on producing caramel malts on the internet. Here’s the procedure I used:

Steeped grain until it reached 42% moisture ( see my video on how to calculate this)

Germinated until acrospire reached 3/4 length of grain.

Stewed in a large heavy cast iron pot with the lid on at 122 F 3 hrs Kept wet.

Raised temperature to 150-160 F for 3 hrs. (Could go for longer I think, about 10% looked a little starchy like one grain in the close up)

Kilned at 175 F for 12 hrs to dry (this is now dextrin malt)

Cured at 275 F to darken 1-2 hrs depending on colour.

Caramel malts

Day three into the steeping process and the grain is soaking for the last time. It’s chitting as of this morning. Thankfully the weather has been co-operating. It’s been within the 10 -15 C range for the last week which is perfect for malting.
