I’ve roasted my own grains before based on a website I found Home Roasting Grains
I think home roasting adds new flavors to your beer because at home barley does not get roasted evenly.
For my home roasting you need:
1 pound of barley, I roast uncrushed but I’ve heard of people roasting crushed barley
cookie sheet and oven
I put the oven on 375 F, and put the unroasted barley in
After 30 minutes at 375 F
See how there is uneven roast. That’s ok it adds a unique taste.
I scooped off half of the barley and put the rest in spreading out over a thin layer.
After 50 minutes at 375 F
The barley is resting in paper bags for the next week or two until I’m ready to brew. Home roasting is a fun way to add a unique taste to your homebrew.
I just used an oven. I’ve heard of people getting fancier with their roast with this
