igliashon, that was what I was thinking. I may try the buckwheat idea. I haven't messed around with any specialty grains since my first gluten free beer because I just didn't seem to get much flavor or color from the quinoa that I steeped. However, I should experiment some more with that.
Calvinist, I like the idea of that recipe a lot although I am not a fan of hazelnut. I will keep the liqueur idea in the back of my mind.
