 From the Nimatama, India around 1500.  Not just barley, but in the 
same category.

Another method for a drink: mix millet, wheat, barley, lentils, and 
toasted chickpeas in rice water and cook them.  Add salt and two 
direms of ghee and drain off the liquid.  Flavour the liquid with 
ghee or with sesame and then make it either sweet or sweet-smelling 
or sharp or put in lime juice and garlic.  These are all varieties.

Put sesame seeds in sweetened and sweet smelling water and this is 
also a variety.

Another method for a dry bread drink: soak the dry bread in water, 
knead it by hand, drain off the water and add flavours and sweeteners.
