I wonder if you guys use any home malting equipment. Or is there such equipment available for homebrewers? I'd like to use automated malting equipment up to 25kg-50kg/batch. If you know such equipment, please share.

I've done a bit of home malting. Nothing automated except the drying process in a dehydrator. Some people have created rotary malting machines that rotate the grain. That is so you don't have to turn it by hand. But you'll need to build it yourself. I did a pretty extensive search into this last year and there is nothing available to the home maltster. You can get commercial equipment but it would take up quite a large space in a warehouse and cost a lot of money.
Malting at home is fairly easy and you can do quite a lot with simple tools. Drying is the tricky part and home dehydrators are perfect for this. Some people turn old clothes driers into dehydrators. Good luck!
