Default Brewing up a Gluten Free Beer this weekend- anyone else?

Brewing an IIPA that I'm going to secondary with some oak soaked in Jack Daniel's.

Having problems with the recipe, mainly because I may not be able to get some Amber Candi sugar and because it was a last minute decision.

Really just an excuse to drink some beer, teach a friend to brew and play some Xbox 360

So, who else is brewing?

Pretty sure I will be!

Gotta get to the LHBS and buy another fermenter, a new o-ring for my old fermenter, some sorghum syrup, hops and yeast.

I'm looking at making a golden Ale, what sort of hops should I get?

I've roasted some buckwheat to a nice golden brown colour, and lightly crushed it. I'll steep that for a half hour or so before starting the boil.

In my other fermenter, I'll be doing up a batch of Edworts Apfelwein, as requested by SWMBO

Nice! I don't really know much about Golden Ale, but let us know what you end up doing!

Just getting setup for brewday, should start in an hour and a half or so.

Well, it appears I roasted my buckwheat too dark for a golden ale, so I'm going for a darker ale, kind of like a tooheys old. The LHBS expert said to use a tiny bit of my Aussie Super Pride (15%AA) hops for bittering, and then some goldings for flavour and aroma.

I'll try and take photos of my brew process this time, and will of course add my recipe to the recipedb

Nice work pwarren!

I wasn't able to get a hold of Amber Candi Sugar before my brew day so I had to use some roasted sorghum to get the amber color I wanted. I also added some molasses and going into the bucket I had a nice amber color. I don't really have any pictures, but if it turns out good I'll post the recipe.

I based it off of the Arrogant Bastard clone- just tweaked it so it was gluten free.

I'm still deciding on whether or not I want to oak the whole batch or just half of it...

Got my pics put up on the interblatz finally.

Bits lined up ready to go


Water getting up to temp


Buckwheat in knee-high stocking


Wort after buckwheat infusion


Sorghum added to wort


Hot Break, about as foamy and boily-over as sorghum seems to get


1042 OG, not as dark as I'd have liked, but darker than my first attempt

You would have gotten more color if you roasted the buckwheat a bit longer. I've been using the method where you increase the temp by 25 degrees-F every 30 minutes until I get the color I want. Most often the grains come out a bit darker than originally after they have sat for 1-2 weeks.

Righto, I'll try that roasting schedule for my next ale. What would be some good hops for a dark ale? (I will search around as well, don't worry!)

Bottled the beer I did above today, it tastes quite sweet, but it's been at 1012 for 3 days, so I think it's pretty much done. Don't know if I can wait for another 3 weeks to taste it, will have to see how my batch of Lager lasts. The lager is REALLY REALLY bitter, but quite refreshing and eminently drinkable
