Default DFH's Blood Orange Hefe- Gluten Free Style

Here's the deal- I like to take some recipes I've read about that sound tasty and modify them so that they are celiac friendly...I've no idea how this will turn out but here's the recipe as it stands. Im brewing this next Saturday (April 10, 2010)...any recipe changes are welcome, but here it is. This is for 5.5 gallons


Ingredients:
------------

6 lbs Sorghum Syrup (60 min)
1 lb Dextrose (60 min)

.50 oz Hallertauer, pellet 4.8% (60 min)
.50 oz Saaz, pellet 4% (20 min)
.50 oz Saaz, pellet 4% (10 min)

4 blood oranges, preparation: Peel oranges and separate sections of fruit. Discard half of the peels. Cut fruit into small pieces. Grate the peel and save the rind only! Heat fruit and peels in 1/2 gallon water to 160-F and then turn off heat. Let it steep as it cools. Pour into fermenter when cooled.

I'll be using T-58 and doing a partial boil.

4 day primary 7 day secondary, carb with 4.2 oz of corn sugar.

This is my last brew until I move into my own place. I'll be living with SWMBO and her family until I find a place to buy. Not sure how they feel about my drinking and whatnot but I guess I'll find out

Anyways, here's the recipe as it stands, if it turns out good I'll post it in the recipe section as well.

Sounds good! The tanginess of sourghum may go very well with the citrus. I've had success using cascade, amarillo, and summit hops with citrus (sweet orange peel).

I would love to make something like this but I have never been able to find blood oranges anywhere.

Good luck!

Just tell your her parents that you're a leader in your field of trying to help provide people with a genetic disorder the opportunity to lead a normal life.

How could they be disappointed by your altruism?

Yea- I am worried I won't be able to find any either but maybe I'll get lucky. The gluten free wit and saison I made both turned out pretty good. There seem to be some styles that sorghum goes well with and others not so well.

True, true...but her family doesn't drink and I don't know how they would feel about me taking over their kitchen for an evening to do this.

Who knows...they may find it a very interesting process to watch. You never know; I'm a big believer in "nothing ventured, nothing gained". I've also learned that my preconceptions of things are usually wrong, so good luck!

Doesn't hurt to ask them family.

I am very interested in hearing how this turns out for you.

As for Blood Oranges, I believe we are reaching the end of the season, so they are a bit harder to find. However, I found a good batch of them last weekend and made the Blood Orange Hefe, but not celiac friendly.

Keep us informed!

Alright, I talked to SWMBO and she said to keep on brewing! It's nice to have support...looks like I won't be stopping after all!

[Update]

I'll be using Tettnang 4.7% in place of the Saaz and Fermentis WB-06 Wheat in place to T-58. According to the Fermentis website all their yeasts are gluten free, so here goes nothing.

With the Tettnang, remember if you want a more American Hefe, then go for the bitter; but if you want a more German Hefe, be careful how much and how long you put the Tettnang in the boil.

If used in the same quantities and timing, I believe the Tettnang will up the IBU from 16.2 with the Saaz to 17.4. Personally both are too bitter for a German Hefe, and not quite bitter enough for an American Hefe.


My friends and family prefer a more German Hefe, so I reduced the amount of hops I used and the hop boil time in mine. So far, it tastes great at about 11.0 IBU! Course, it's still fermenting, so we'll see what it is like when it is out of the Fermenter. --- And yes, that is not for the Gluten Free Style, but I think the points are similar. I'm wanting to see how the Gluten Free Hefe comes out.

Thanks for the input, right now Beer Smith shows the IBU at 10.7
