Can I make malt syrup out of diastatic malt powder?

Hello,

I have a recipe that calls for 1 Tbsp malt syrup but all I have in stock is diastatic malt powder.  Is it possible to make a syrup using the powder?

Thanks for your help!, AJ

Mix malt with water, may be 3-4 liters of water to a kilo of malt, warm it up to 65 °C and keep it at that temperature for a few hours, then filter and boil down.
