Is there a possibility of "Over malting" grain?

(1/4) > >>

rabid_dingo:
I brewed Denny's Rye PA and my base malt had quite a bit of grain that had the root growing out of it.
the mash, once drained, looked like I threw in some broken ramen noodles. Does the malting process
go to far and is there an adverse effect when that happens.

IIRC, yes, it can go too far and be detrimental.  But I don't have facts at hand.

How were your efficiencies compared to previous batches?

The taste will be the final judge but efficiency could point to an issue

rabid_dingo:
It is fermenting nicely, My efficiency held. I am not too worried but it was one of those
thoughts that if I paid for a certain product and I got bad product I'd like to know
and try to exchange or replace. But I won't know for another week or so...

rabid_dingo:
Here are some images...
This is a handful of grain I pulled out of the bin. I separated the more "advanced" sprouts.


Close up of the advanced sprouts.


I hope the ratio holds true.
