Looks like it will probably be a pretty tasty product in any event but I don't know that you'll get that characteristic taste most clones go after. The one I'd had the most success/satisfaction was closest to Wackybrew's recipe but as has been pointed out it's not GF.

The obstacle to me looks like it would be the biscuit-like flavor. I've been toying with some of Palmer's recommendations for toasting his own malts and later moved up with a biscuitish/victoryish type target to fairly decent success. I wonder if you could take the same approach with the Buckwheat (albeit probably in somewhat smaller quantities). Roasting just doesn't quite have the same flavor to me (although to be fair I'm drawing parallels to Roasted Barley primarily). And if the belgian syrup can replace some of the Special B I'd wager it'd provide enough sweet to skip the crystal-like sub entirely. That's just me though.

Why are people brewing gluten free? The beer is not very good. I know that people will Celiac disease and a couple of others need to be gluten free but I understand that is rare. Just a question- not a confrontation.

Well, you have kind of just answered your own question there, dude. We are brewing Gluten Free beers because we cannot have gluten, but still want beer. Our beers are actually quite good. Perhaps, you have only tried commercial ones and are judging all gluten free beers on these?

It's actually not so rare as you think. 1 in 100 people in Great Britain have Coeliac Disease.

And there are an absolute **** ton of people who are not coeliac but are highly intolerant. Think eating month old Mexican food.
