Yeah man. Of course.

1kg of Buckwheat, malted and roasted.
250g roasted quinoa.
1kg Demerara sugar.
1kg rice syrup.
Hops of your choice.

Cracked malted grains with a rolling pin, also buzzed a few in the coffee grinder for 2/3 pulses. Boiled up the water, threw in the buckwheat for 2 hours with 300g of Demerara sugar. Threw in the quinoa after 1 hour 45 as I did them a slightly darker roast, mostly for colour. But they did smell quite good too. Removed all of the grains, and washed them with boiling water to remove any remaining sugars, then returned the water in to the pot. Boiled the hops for 40 minutes in the wort. Emptied the rice syrup into fermentation bucket, and poured in 3 litres of boiling water and stirred. After the hops have finished, poured into bucket through a sieve to catch any sugars that may be stuck to them. Topped up with cold water to 23litres. Poured in the rest of the brown sugar, added Belgian Ale yeast. It is currently going crazy. Haha I will let you know what happens.

If the images have loaded correctly, that is what colour I roasted the buckwheat. That is the boiling showing the colour of it. And that is the fermentation tub showing the 'High water mark' of how crazy it got.

Just bottled it and couldn't resist trying it. Hoppy first taste, with a very nice, dry, nutty after taste. Still a little pale and looks like a blonde, but I have used some Demerara sugar for carbing, so may make it a little darker. Maybe try darker brown sugar than Demerara instead when you bottle, unless you roast yours darker. Has quite a nice body to it, but will be much better once it is fully carbonated. I will try to roast the grain a little darker next time. But still, it tastes good. The best one I have done so far. Lets just see what the expert missus says.

This is what it turned out like. Very happy with it. Has had 2 days in the bottle, so still needs to clear and carb fully. Tastes just like 'real' beer.
