Making barley syrup from powder
Does anyone know if there is a conversion/recipe to replace or make barley syrup from malt powder? If I've understood what I've read elsewhere, then theoretically malt powder was at one point a syrup, so it should just be a matter of reversing the process. I've done searches here and the rest of the net, but haven't found anything that might suggest how to convert from powder to syrup. I know that you can just buy the syrup, but I thought that it might be nice to be able to convert the powder in a pinch.
This question might pertain more to non-baking applications but I thought that if anyone knew, the wise contributors of TFL would be the ones. Thanks!
