Decided to try to make a gluten free bitter. Basic recipe, but replaced grains with gluten free grains. It is a 3 Imperial gallon batch. Apologies for the mixing of Imperial and Metric measurements. But I am sure you can work it out.

1lb Medium roast buckwheat crystal
1lb Medium roast malted buckwheat
250g Plain oats (not toasted)
250g Flaked millet (not toasted)
1lb of dark brown sugar
1lb of golden syrup
0.5oz Goldings 30 minutes
1oz Fuggles 30 minutes
1 teaspoon Irish Moss 15 minutes

First time using a carboy, and I now love the fact I can see what my beer is doing, and what colour it is etc. Below is a picture of what it looks like this morning. Smells great. Really looking forward to tasting it.

Basically threw everything in at the beginning. Held the water at 140f/60c for two hours. Pulled out the grains and washed them, then added that water back into the wort. Put in the hops and turned up the heat for a 30 minute rolling boil. Placed in carboy and topped up to 3.5 gallons with cold water. Placed in the sink and kept cold water around it to cool it quicker. Then threw in the yeast.

also do you happen to know the OG. I though you have to go to a higher temperature to gelatinise the grains. So I assume from this you were able to get a good amount of sugars out of the grains.

Hey man. No, sorry I don't. I can never be bothered. I know I should, but it's too much like hard work for me.


Tried a sample of it last night. Still quite sweet but that is to be expected after only 3 days. Tasted quite fruity though. A little like Timmy Taylor's. never done a beer with Golden Syrup in it. So wondering if that has helped the fruity flavours.

Turned out to be more like a Northern brown ale. Still happy with it. Has a nice fruity after taste. Still not fully carbonated, but couldn't wait to try it. Will up date on the head and stuff when fully carbonated.

Sounds good! Would you change anything in your recipe or did you like the fruity taste? How long did you ferment and bottle condition for?

Hey. Nope, wouldn't change any part of it. It all worked. The fruity taste is only slight and works with the beer. Thankfully it isn't citrusy, more peachy. Fermented for 10 days. Bottled and is still carbonating as we speak. Will report back when it is done.
