I live out in the middle of no where so I do mostly homebrew shop orders over the internet. Purchased a kit of Bard's GF from one of the larger homebrew shops online. Made an IPA also and when I was dry hopping made a mistake. Ooops, I put in 1oz. of Cascade and 1 oz. of Amarillo into the Bards instead of my IPA. But it turned out pretty darn good and gave the beer some flavor. If I was to do the kit again, add dextrose for some body and more hops in boil. Or add some malted buckwheat.

Hey Tractor, sounds like a happy mistake. If you're trying to add body, dont use dextrose, use malto dextrin. Dextrose will thin the body out, its highly fermentable.

Kits:

Austin Homebrew , Morebeer , and Seven Bridges all have kits . None of them have much selection , but it is a place to start . Sounds like a good opportunity for someone. Master a bunch of GF recipes and start and online GF homebrew supply . Or, work with one of these shops to get more kits on the shelf. I have never even had a GF beer, but was interested in the thread and shocked to find so few kits available .

Yes, your correct about the malto dextrin. Typed the wrong sugar in. Doh. I'll try to be better about that next time.

Thank you
