it should still be soft enough to chew easily though. if it's steely then you might be dealing with unmalted rye which is a different thing again.
Side question...is it kosher to chew malted grains? I keep hearing about rat droppings, etc. in this stuff.
ha! i've eating more grain than i can weigh...haven't died yet.
OK, well I'll just pop a handful of this 2-row into my mo
your a funny guy. I see what you did there.
it should be fairly easy to distinguish between a kernal of rye malt (smooth, greenish, hard to the fingernail but will crumble) and a rat dropping (smooth, blackish, soft to the fingernail and will squish). and if you mistake two row for rat droppings you best switch suppliers.
share the joke boys..i'm thick i guess
