Well, if you notice not many recipes are all sorghum around here, but most people use other fermentables cover/compliment the taste of sorghum.

That being said here are some general guidelines people around here use when using sorghum:

1. Add it at flameout or just before. The longer it boils the more metallic twang you will get.
2. Keep the sorghum syrup to 2/3 of your grist or less. A nice hop profile, 2/3's sorghum and the rest rice syrup, rice syrup solids, honey candi syrup, etc. (or some combination thereof) and you'll have a good beer.
3. Some people claim using yeast nutrient with DAP reduces the twang too.

Diammonium phosphate.

The yeast nutrient I use (Carlson) has it in it.

Kegging. No word of a lie it's the best thing I've done.

I always found my beers were great from the fermenter, then they'd go in bottles for a while and it would take ages to get back to that flavour. Now I go into the keg, force carb and drinking it 24 hours later (within 7 days it's fully carbed).
