I've got a small bag of whole barley malt intended for brewing beer. After doing a bit of reading I'm getting conflicting information. Some say the outer hull in not edible, while others say it is fine and a good source of fiber.
Take this yahoo answer for example, which indicates that unhulled wheat is the same as whole wheat. I don't think that's true, as I'm under the impression that the outer hull or chaff is not the same thing as the bran (and germ) included in whole wheat.
Is the unhulled barley edible or not? My intended purpose is simply to mill it and simmer to as a breakfast cereal.
