Threaded View
I was thinking to grow my own barley this coming summer and prepare it for
making a brew.

Can anyone tell me anything about growing barley, different strains/types,
how long to soak, how long to leave germinating and temps and techniques of
drying etc. any websites etc?

Should be an interesting project!

Stew.
