Hi, im loooking for help, since im having a hard time trying to figure out malt powder.
The thing is I live in Argentina, and it took me a while to figure out what exactly malt powder is in my country, specially because of the language. Ive been doing some research on the subject, and read in some places that honey could be used instead of malt. I wasnt too sure, but last weekend i made some kaiser rolls, with honey instead of malt.
I spent the week visiting stores and supermarkets and wasnt able to find malt powder anywhere, all i could find was malt extract, which is a kind of syrup, but im not sure if it has the same use as powder. The syrup came in a little can of about 200cc, and it was a very thick kind of syrup. When i asked the guy at the store if he had malt extract in powder instead of syrup, he told me "You mean malt flour? no we dont have that". I didnt know malt flour even existed, but then i thought that maybe thats how they call malt powder in mi country.
I want to know if there is such thing as malt flour, or if it is in fact malt powder, and i can give malt syrup, the same use as malt powder.
I hope you can clear these doubts and questions I have about malt and the many forms it is available. Thank you a lot.
