Home kilned amber malt

Post by coyoteflats » Sun Nov 27, 2011 9:28 am

My brew store was out of amber malt, but they sold me a pound of Pale 2-row that I'm going to roast at home. Never tried it before, of course; any tips? Thanks!

toasting your own malt

I've never tried it, but John Palmer's How to Brew has a chapter on toasting your own malt.

However, this Wikipedia page says that Amber Malt is kilned at ~300°F.

This page on roasting malt has another method.
