    My wife has brought a air fryer/oven thing. It has a rotating small drum that is a stainless mesh, it looks like the mesh will be small enough to hold grain. Thinking of giving it a go roasting up some malt, the darker malts are quite expensive and because the drum rotates i should be able to go reasonable dark without scorching much at all. Will try it out for. dark beer. might not quite get a chocolate malt, but i can always buy half a kilo of that

    Sounds like fun pretty much how the maltsters do it. Looking forward to the results.
    Oh and remember to let them dark roasted malts rest in either a paper bag or hop sock to reduce astringency for two weeks or so I did mine.

    I never thought of using my air fryer to roast malt. I will have to try this.
