What kind of papers do you use to roll the malt? How fine of a crush do you use on the malt before rolling it? Is it a Cuban type roll or Dominican?

Just sayin'.

Kevin Pratt in Sacramento is an authority on smoked malt, and always has a few varieties for sale at his homebrew store. I believe he makes it himself. ... Categories

Grumpy Troll Brewery in Mt. Horeb WI did a similar beer with the rocks in the boil and secondary.

Boscos in Little Rock also does a flaming stone beer. From their website

Boscos Famous Flaming Stone Beer is what is known as a steinbier, or stone beer. Red-hot pieces of pink Colorado granite are heated to 700 degrees in Boscos wood fired oven and lowered into the wort (unfermented beer) during the brewing process. The resulting steam and sizzle caramelizes sugars in the wort. The result is a sweeter, softer tasting beer with a caramel undertone.
