Simplified FAT TIRE GF Clone?
 
A gluten intolerant friend misses Fat Tire and Id like to do something similar using Sorghum Syrup, Brown Rice Syrup, Fuggle and Willamette hops. Any ideas?

I'll say the hops sound good, but I'm not sure what yeast you'd use and how you would keep it a little malty. Fat Tire is a bit malty right?

Im not sure Ive had it once 4 years ago lol Theres 1/2 lb chocolate malt in a clone Ive seen but I dont know if chocolate malt is gluten free... I guess all I can really do is take a clone recipe and replace all the malts with the syrup huh?

That's how I've started some of my recipes. Any barley malts should not be used as they are not gluten free. Check this thread for info on gluten free ingredients to use. I'm thinking that your friend will be happy just to get a homebrewed gluten free beer even if it isn't exactly like Fat Tire.

Theyve been drinking Redbridge or whatever and I bet theyre not satisfied lol So is chocolate malt gluten free?

No it isn't :( Pretty much all the malts you see in recipes and in the catalogs are going to be either barley or wheat based. Chocolate refers mostly to the color and a bit flavorwise as well.

I'm just starting my GF brewing adventure so I can't offer any recommendations as what to sub for the chocolate malt.

You could roast some gluten free grains really dark like I have for my brown ale. I don't know what other qualities chocolate malt would contribute since I've only ever brewed gluten free.

A faint burnt, coffee-esque flavor. I would replace with .25oz of coffee.

Maybe something like:
6lb Brown Rice Syrup (60min)
1lb Amber Candi Syrup (60min)
.25oz Coffee (Primary)
4tsp Yeast Nutrient (When pitching yeast)

Copy the hop schedule from your clone.

Ferment with Fermentis S33.

Good luck!

Did someone actually brew this? Curious to how it turned out. I just bought my first round of GF ingredients and I might try this one out.

scottmd06 06-24-2011 03:48 AM

I didn't brew this particular recipe for them but I did brew this one that I will post, and they LOVED IT!!!

6.5 lbs. Briess White Sorghum Syrup (45 high)
2 lbs. BriesSweetTM Brown Rice Syrup (45 high)
4 oz. Grandma's Original Unsulphured Molasses

1oz. Willamette Hops
.5oz. Fuggle Hops

Dissolve Sorghum, Brown Rice Syrup, and Molasses into boil.
Hop for 60 mins with 1 oz. of Willamette Hops..
Hop for 20 mins with .25oz of Fuggle Hops.
Add in yeast nutrients.
Hop for another 5 mins with .25oz of Fuggle Hops.
