Description

Grains are a cornerstone of society, yet the local foods movement has barely engaged with them. A renaissance in small-scale grain processing technology is needed to build resilient food systems in the face of the ecological crisis. The talk will explore the specifics of small-scale malting equipment, as well as the history and biochemistry of malting and brewing.
