It's not "beer" in the traditional sense but everyone who has tried it so far has enjoyed it!
I make a gf beer with a mix of blackberries and raspberries. I use about 5lbs total. I freeze the berries. Then I put them in at the end of the boil. I turn the heat off, drop them in, mash them up against the sides, and then use heat to try to hold the temp to 150*. I've made one with all sorghum and it wasn't that good. I made one with half sorghum and half brow rice syrup and it was okay. The best version has been the one with just rice solids. Oh, I do add honey, at least a pound, every time I make this.
