Many moons ago I was more interested in bread than beer.

I came across a piece on the 'net about Diastatic Barley Malt - how to make it etc. - As I recall it was like a aphrodisiac for Yeast.
I started into this with limited success, then saw something shiny and did not return.

I found this piece today which may be of interest to bread lovers...

I'm thinking milled/ground Pale Malt may be a substitute.

Thoughts?

Just realised the link above is a few years old.

Something a little more recent here...

Feel to post a how-to here in case the links above go stale.
