Question I have is:

Is the Blonde Ale or the No Pils Pils a closer profile to Labatt's Blue?

My wife loved LB and since she has Celiac she can no longer drink it and not a fan of beer except LB. Was hoping one of these two would be a nice test

Thanks

Finding information on labatt's is actually tough, their websites are terrible.

From what I remember, labatt's blue is a light lager with a bit of fruitiness to it. No Pils Pils would be pretty close as written, but perhaps sub some honey for brown rice syrup to make the taste lighter.

one other question is do you have to "hot-Break" the wort like a normal beer or just a good boil?

Hot break is material formed during a vigorous boil. This requirement is there to subdue off-flavor causing compounds like DMS. The amount of DMS in beer varies a small amount by ingredient, but the only real concern is pilsner grain. You should boil your GF beer like you would a normal, non-pilsner gluten-having beer.

60 min of rolling boil is a good start.

I didn't directly link the Blonde ale because I wasn't sure I had it right. It wasn't coming up for me, but I thought it might have been due to being at work. Guess it wasn't just me then.

I gave the gluten free dark ale kit a shot as my first brew ever and all things considered is pretty decent. Not as dark as I would have liked but "actually tastes like beer" according to my girlfriend
