Okay, my sister-in-law is trying to go gluten free because of chron's like problems that she thinks could be related to gluten. As a Christmas present I wanted to brew her some gluten free beer. Instead of just making a straight extract sorghum beer, I wanted to add some buckwheat for some nuttiness.
Here is what I was thinking, please tell me if this would work at all
1lb cracked buckwheat roasted at 325 until I get a nice browned color.
Steep the resulting roasted buckwheat in 160F water for 20 minutes.
Bring to a boil, add 3.3lbs sorghum extract. .5oz cascade hops for 1hr, 1oz cascade hops for 15 minutes and .5oz cascade hops at flame out.
2.5G batch. S-05 yeast for 3 weeks and then bottle.
