Deschutes had a Crystal Weiss in Portland around mid-July last year that was GF and it was amazing.

I asked them for the recipe via email and they sent me a sorghum beer recipe. I suspect the Crystal Weiss was not sorghum but was either science-beer (had the gluten removed) or was Chestnut chips. I've never had a GF beer that tasted anything nearly as good as that Crystal Weiss.

I am now wondering if there is more than one. I have now read about an amber, an ESB, a golden, something called rootin tootin low gluten (another golden), and now a Krystallweizen.

They might just be experimenting on a bunch of styles or something and seeing what sticks.

Oh, and can you send me the recipe you got or post it on here? I can probably determine which beer it is.

What's the 90 min boil for? Does that help break down the sorghum? I've wondered about the different times. I do 60min on the sorghum and BRS but have wondered if maybe that's too long for BRS.

For me a 90 minute boil is either to get more hop bitterness or to boil off more water for a higher gravity. But that's just me.

The only decent commercial GF beer I have had is the Green's brand. I have never heard of the ones on the list.

I agree. I have been getting Green's at a macrobiotic restaurant in the East Village when I visit NY on business, and it is the best thing I have found.

Of course I have not been able to find much in my own area beyond the usual suspects (Red Bridge, New Grist, and Bards).

Greens tastes like sweet nasty crap to me. And my wife who is the one that can't have gluten agrees. We heard the hype about Greens and were so excited to finally try some. We bought each of the three kinds the store had in stock. Those are the last three we ever bought. Duara (sp?) is the most beer like of any GF beer I've ever tried. Of course it is beer that has had the gluten removed. My wife calls it "science beer." We often mix it with other GF things I've tried to make to get some malt characteristic into it.

90min boil can also make beer darker and drive off more DMS.

I would say chances are very good that 90min is just Deschutes standard boil time and this beer is no exception. 60min should be perfectly fine guys.
