That's pretty interesting. I'd be curious to see what differences people notice (if any).

Nothing else you'd definitely have to adjust your strike water temp.    :)

Maybe there's a reason it hasn't been done in over 200 years?
Sure, it would be a logistical nightmare at any real scale. Sounds neat to me.

Somewhere I have read that the malt needs to rest after kilning, I thought that was for better extract. Taste? Anyone have a clue?

"2.6.3 Malt storage

The water content slowly increases during

storage to 4 - 5 % . This results in physical and

chemical changes in the endosperm which

make further processing easier. Freshly kilned

malt if used immediately can cause lautering

and fermentation difficulties.

Malt is therefore stored at least 4 weeks

in silos or stores. Since most of the seedlings

are no longer alive and respiration in the corn

would only cause undesirable losses, the malt

silo is not ventilated. A precondition for proper

storage is that the malt does not become moist

because it is hygroscopic. Moist air therefore

has to be kept away. The malt which is to be

stored has to be well cleaned, cold and dry.

In silo storage, because of the smaller sur-
face area, the risk of water uptake is lower

than when storing in malt stores. In malt stores

the malt layer is about 3 m high. Previously this

was often covered by a layer of germs which

absorbed the moisture and consequently pre-
vented water uptake by the malt." -Kunze

Where's you "try it for yourself before you judge it" attitude?

Oh, it's still there....just expressing my skepticism.

So try it before you judge it unless you've already judged it

I am making a SWAg based on info I have available.  I look forward to someone seeing what happens.
