Definitely working towards making them available to the homebrew market.
Only problem for me at the moment is producing large quantities of base malts. But I'm working on that too.

Sounds awesome. Its something I have thought about as a barley grower, but where I am all sales would have postage and by the time you sell a few kgs and add postage I figured it wouldn't be worth it.
How are you doing this? Floor malting? Or more sophisticated? How are you Kilning?
Are you involved with the distilling industry down there? I know the brother of Larks distillery who said they are planning a paddock to bottle set up which involves malting their own grain.
I love it more info please.

Setup at present is actually pretty simple because I've only been doing them for myself and a few others.
Steep tank, malting tank, floor dried and oven kilned. Like I said, pretty simple.
Funny you should mention distilleries mash head, whiskey is the main reason I started malting but I got sidetracked by beer.

MMMM tasty tasty beer.......................


But I digress.
I've been getting the processes, temperature profiles etc sorted so I can then upscale and produce larger amounts.

I'd be more than happy to post interstate if you're interested. Let me know what you want and I'll get it done.

I'd be interested in trying your biscuit, all crystals and all chocolates.

I'd order a kg of each, posted to Vic. PM details or include here.

Cheers

Just out of interest, how much do most people pay for spec malts?
I haven't actually sold any malt for real money as yet. It's always been in exchange for beer!
MMMM beer.......

I was thinking $5/kg on most small orders purely based on grain and grape ish prices.
That's not too steep is it??

Right now I'm kilning in a fan forced oven that I vent to a set opening size and monitor the temperature independently.
I'm currently building a new much bigger dedicated kiln but I'm kinda limited by time and space. Just like Einstein.
Also looking into buying/building a large drum roaster.

$5/kg for specialty malts is pretty good. Particularly hand crafted stuff where you can talk to the maltster...

Colour me interested.

I'm in. I'll buy to try. Nice to see someone in Oz shooting for handmade commercial malts. I've seen a couple do it but the time is nigh that someone like yourself could get it right and kick into high gear. Hope it all goes well. Love to try your product.

And yes, $5 kilo is reasonable for specialty malts.

Wow I didn't realise there would be so much interest in this.
I'm gonna busy in the coming weeks!
I should also mention that I have a grain mill so they'd be available whole or milled.

Price is fine. Are you interested in constructive reviews? Either PM or public?

Yeah definitely give feedback. Public is good cause everyone knows what's going on. pm might be better for orders cause I can more easily keep track of them.
