A few pictures of the Malting process. I will write it up if anybody is interested. I've been meaning write it up from the notes, but I just seem to keep running out of time for anything at present.

You can get some interesting stuff to grow out of bird seed mix!
My dad had a spectacular plant about a meter tall with great big yellow flowers..I googled it and found it to be a south American plant called something like Devils Trumpet and deadly poisonous! A bit of unleaded soon fixed it!
