So my FIL is GF, as well as my wife. So seeing my FIL and wife not be able to enjoy a cold frosty one has made me sad. So I decided to try my hand at a sorghum beer and although they think its good I have made it a quest to make a better gf beer. This is my latest trial.
3 lbs buckwheat (malted at 275* for close to 3 hrs)
.25 lbs flaked corn
.25 lbs gf rolled oats
3 lbs sorghum syrup
.5 lbs rice syrup solids
.5 Oz cluster hops (60 min)
.5 Oz cluster hops (30 min)
White labs American Ale yeast WLP060
Put 7.5 gallons water and bring to 150-155 and add buckwheat, corn, oats. Steep 60 minutes.
(I swear that the buckwheat and corn soaks 2 gallons water lol)
Then add sorghum and rice syrup solids and bring to boil.
Add hops at 60 and 30 minutes.
Cool and bring to fermenter and add yeast. This beer gave me a barely 5 gallon yield. My OG was a little low at 1.030. Oh well it really looks like my cream ale I brew a lot of. I will keep you posted as to results!
