Default A little picture for you to enjoy...

I just opened the second to the last bottle of my first batch of GF beer. I had the perfect pour, and it looked so good I just had to take a picture and post it.



So, it looks like beer. It has bubbles in it, and it has nice head.

Nice work, did the head stick around? Mine usually dissapates quickly, but every once in a while, I get one that just stays right there and looks oh so nice.

Yes, it was still there by the time I had gone and got the camera, took the picture, taken the card out and stuck it in the computer, posted the pic, and then got my supper.

Wow, looking at that picture today is making me thirsty!

And I noticed that little microwave cart isn't level.

Man it is going to be real hard to make my last bomber of this stuff last...

I actually made a bunch of mistakes when I was making it (incorrectly reading my measurements, etc), and I ended up with close to 7 gallons of wort when I pitched...so this one is going to go down as 'unique'.

But anyway 6 lbs of sorghum extract, 1 lb of rice syrup solids, and 12 oz of sugar, and 2 oz maltodextrin.
there was 2 oz of Strisselspalt at 60 min,
1 oz coriander (10 minutes) and 1 oz of fresh orange peel (1 min)

When I bottled, I used sorghum again (12 oz) and 6 more oz of maltodextrin because the beer seemed quite watery.

The beer was still I little off, probably because the hops and spices were aimed at 5 gallons, and I ended up with a lot more fermentables to try and make it less watery. If I had cut out some of the sorghum in the beginning, and done the intended 5 gallons, I think it would have been even better!

Lately, I've been getting better head from the gluten free beer. Although, those have been from a bottle and the regular beer is out of a keg. I kegged my first GF last night, I'll have to see how that does.
