Malt combings are a waste product consisting of dry rootlets, small grains and culms produced after kilning during the malting process. These dry combings are high in protein and phenolic compounds.

Vince O’Brien, Doug Stewart, Tara Pukala and Chris Colby can be seen in the photo below underneath the kiln at the Coopers brewery. The material on the floor is the waste malt combings.
