I am wondering if anybody has brewed with any acient grains? Einkorn Emmer, Spelt, and Amaranth are a few of the varieties I am asking about. I am really interested in the Amaranth because it is gluten free. Also if no one has brewed with them, do they know if there are any places that could malt them?
thanks a ton,

Presently, we are using malted spelt from Weyermann. Not sure if they do any others though. We use it like wheat malt but lower extract. Cost is about twice as much as normal wheat.
