My query on another board led me to confusion so now I am here. I want to make an old-fashioned malted milk that has a strong flavor of malt. The only product I am finding retail in Chicago is Carnation which is horribly sweet. and has no discernible flavor of malt. Somebody suggested using barley malt powder as it has a stronger malt flavor---same person said that malted milk powder sold for drinks is mixed with other stuff. But when I google barley malt powder, it's recommended for baking (Barry Farms, l lb barley malt powder) and doesn't mention drinks. Does anyone know if barley malt powder is actually used in malted milk drinks? I don't want it for baking. The iideal correspondent I'm really looking for is an ex-soda jerk from the 1940's and 1950's who remembers what drugstores used to use then. I haven't had a malt-tasting malted milk in about forty years.
