BARLEY - Defined

BARLEY—A grain used by brewers in malting; generally found on the market in two sizes or qualities known as Scotch and Pearl. The Scotch is larger and has the inner husk left on; the Pearl is smaller and completely freed from husk, which makes it better adapted for culinary use; chiefly used in soups and gruels.
