Default Hello from Colorado

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f29/glut...newbie-218854/

As I hate being "that" person with the strange diet, it's difficult for me to talk about being gluten-free. But it does the body good, never been disease free for so long. Beer was the hardest thing to give up. There's a couple good ones out there, I'm really lucky to have the Fort Collins, CO-based "New Planet". It's a nice sorgum beer. All the darks that I like come from Belgium, are millet-based, and cost $5.99/pint.

So here I go, armed with very little knowledge, jumping into yet another hobby, and trying to do some good.

I got Stephen Buhner's book: Sacred and Herbal Healing Beers: The Secrets of Ancient Fermentation. It's pretty interesting and has helped to simplify the process for my overly scientific and inquisitive (Dr. Vet Med) mind. So I started basic with a walk around my woods and a raid of the sweet stuff in my pantry. At least it will be gluten-free!

Thanks for any tips you might have brewing without gluten or malts!

Read the stickies in the GF forum and that should give you plenty of information to get rolling.

I think you are one of many 2 of us on here who has tasted New Planet. A lot of us are interested in it since it has won some awards.

In any case, let us know if you want any help making a recipe to start out with, we all started somewhere!

my non-GF gf picked up a sixer of new planet when she was in Colorado this past summer. i still have 1-2, they were good, reminds me almost of a heffweizen, but i still cant get past the sorghum after taste. i was also glad to hear that they werent 5.99 a bottle.
