    The best malts I've ever had are the ones I make myself. I have always used a blender to do this. Trouble is, my blender is not up to the job. I use ice cream that, of course, has been in the freezer and starts out hard. I suppose that I could wait until it softens but that ain't my style. By the time I've finished the first malt, the blender has started to overheat and sometimes even smoke and smell. Not good. I need a better blender, or a machine specifically made for the job. But I've been unable to find a really heavy-duty blender or a malt machine.

    Anyone with recommendations?

    I have one of these retro drink mixers from Hamilton Beach:

    I've only used it a couple of times, but it seems to do the trick. Click the picture and you'll see Amazon is selling 'em for $30. Now that you mention it, I think I'll fire mine up tonight!

    I usually use one of those handheld (multipractic?) blenders. Cleanup is much easier.
