An IPA or APA is the best way to cover the sorghum flavour. These type of beers are based more on the hops.

What kind of beers are you looking at making? Ales? Lagers? (non)Whitbeer? There's plenty of recipes out here, or we can help put one together. Any particular flavors that you want? Hoppy? Chocolate? Fruit? Coffee?

Hoppy or fruit would be great? What are some options?

Default Aging helps and I added strawberries

For me about a month of resting seems to take away a good chuck of the metallic hint that sorghum seems to have. My last batch was a strawberry blond and it seemed to do the trick for me.

Made my first Gluten free beer, actually first home brew. Turned out great. Basically Sorghum extract, 2 oz hops, honey. Actually looking to expand with adding Millet, rice, and buckweat. Was curious if anyone had any idea on how much of the above I need to add.

Got a gluten intolerant buddy that goes pretty heavy on the honey and late hop additions to hide the sorghum taste. After a few brews you'll find that without some serious changes, all your sorghum brews will taste relatively the same. I am as well looking for some solutions for him.
