Ok, explain Gluten free? I made some gluten free cookies for the kids (mix was a gimme) and they tasted pretty bad, and hard as a rock. What is gluten free beer? Yeah, I could google it but I'm lazy. Anyhow, have you made it before and what's it like?

Is there a gluten free kit you can buy? Im still a little nervous about creating my own beer recipes, and one of my best friends is allergic to gluten so I would like to make him some beer, maybe half a batch (2.5 gallons)

Most grains used for bread/ beer contain gluten which in bread allows the dough to stick together elastisity? anyway some are allergic to it even the slightest bit can cause some real problems. There are some gluten free grains for beer sorghum is most common. Busch makes one called Redbridge not a bad tasting beer different but when you can't have the real thing it's kind of nice. Anyway I'm try to get a good recipe down for a few friends here who appreciate the effort.

I haven't seen any kits I get the extract from Northern Brewer $10.?? 6# use it as a pale ale use you favorite hops and any flavorings you want as long as they are gluten free. I believe Wyeast also makes a liquid gluten free yeast.

Thanks for the post. I've got a friend with Celiac's and is begging me to make a GF beer.

What can be added to darken it up?

Regarding the Gluten Free Old Ale
19-A Old Ale recipe -- I was about to put a batch of similar ingredients together for first time GF brew. Difference is in the amount of sorghum syrup -- this recipe calls for 12# and mine for 6#. I keep reading how the sorghum syrup is SWEETER than the barley malt...so, does this mean you'll get a higher alcohol content with #12 sorghum recipe? Also, is the 5.2 Ph stabilizer necessary? Is the candi sugar amber to be added in before bottling?

What is the size of your boil?

If you only use 6# of the sorghum syrup, your OG won't be in the range of 1.060 - 1.090 which is the target for an Old Ale.

I'd boil the candi sugar for the full 60 minutes.

Sorry, not your batch size, but how much are you boiling in your brew pot?
