It's possible to have been infected during the addition of the dry hop, or the introduction of oxygen. Everything listed was the boil? What were the sanitary procedures?

It's kind of hard to tell based on different sours. One person's good sour is another person's bad sour to boot. (Like blue cheese I suppose). Do you see any odd film growing on the top of the beer?

Just bottled this last night and had a half filled bottle left over. Of course I had to drink it uncarbed on the spot, the flavor was fantastic!

Thanks for sharing!

Just cracked the first two bottles tonight.. This recipe turned out fantastic, one of the better gluten free beers.

Highly recommend trying this one.

The only change I made was priming it with honey.

I recently brewed a 1 gallon batch that was inspired by MapleTree's recipe and it came out pretty good.

When I scale up to a full 5 gallon batch, I'm planning on keeping more faithful to the original recipe. One thing I was considering doing differently with the large batch would be to use S-33 instead of Nottingham.

Anyone have any opinions on this?

Thanks again for posting the recipe!

Hope it works out! We're actually planning to try this as a 2.5 gallon batch when we drink through the rest of the chocolate "porter". 5 gallons takes a while for the two of us to get through.

I used to really enjoy the citrus notes of Shock Top. Think I'm going to have to try this.

I finally got around to brewing this in a 2.5-gallon batch; I used orange/pineapple juice and honey for priming those are the only two deviations from the original recipe. I tried one after being in the bottle for one week and it was horrible. I mean bad I could not even finish my glass and had to pour the rest bottle out, so I waited another week and decided to try it again and what a surprise I was in for. This beer made a complete 180 in a week from horrible nasty beer to something I would make and drink again. The citrus notes and the touch of honey flavor is wonderful. It is a very crisp and clean beer with little to no sorghum tang to it. I do not drink GF beer at all, I brewed it for my mother who has a gluten allergy but I would consider brewing it for myself.
