Malting is the process of converting barley into malt, for use in brewing, distilling, or in foods and takes place in a maltings, sometimes called a malthouse, or a malting floor. The sprouted barley is kiln-dried by spreading it on a perforated wooden floor. Smoke, coming from an oasting fireplace (via smoke channels) is then used to heat the wooden floor and the sprouted grains. The temperature is usually around 55 °C (131 °F).

Fresh shoots of germinating (malted) green barley at Laphroaig; the malting floor is used to "trick" the barley grains into behaving as though it were springtime: "... barley is soaked three times at room temperature (simulating spring rains), then spread out over a floor [to germinate]. During four days in the summer (seven in winter), the malt is turned over with rakes to reduce heat build-up and release carbon dioxide that builds up in the piles. Then it is dried to halt germination."
