    Malting some wheat I have around. I've malted barely from 2 row barley (came from Coors grower) and went very well. This batch did very well, and dried nicely. Picture of the wheat malting in process.

    All dried and waiting to be crushed and converted. I'm lucky in that I work at a winery that has bales and bales of rice hulls. So, I got a couple of coffee cans full of rice hulls since wheat are without hulls.

    those rootlets are almost past due, you have a machine that removes them?

    The picture of the rootlets was taking on the day they were dried. It was not a large batch, so when it was totally dry, I used a large strainer to rub around and removed the dried roots. Worked well. Root were sifted outside on a clear and slight breezy day.

    I did the same thing with mine, I use a stainless steal basket and gloves and just rub and rub
