I brewed this exact on Aug 21 and pitched the yeast on the 22nd. The wort sample was as you described, mind-numbingly bitter. I have high hopes though. I ended up using dried rice extract so we'll see how that comes out. I didn't an OG reading since I no longer have a hydrometer. I'm glad I have a blow off tube because the krausen is crazy with this beer. Given I have almost filled my carboy with wort, the krausen is still impressive.

I second igliashon's taste notes. The bottling sample was great for any beer, gluten free or regular. I just finished bottling and the color is deep black as expected. The beer definitely could use some aging as the hops are bit intense and need to mellow out.
