Oh, I also added a teaspoon of Irish moss 15 minutes before the end of the boil.

Did you malt the quinoa?

I tried, but wasn't successful so I just roasted them. I only malted the buckwheat, I have done that a few times now and find quite easy. Just soaked them in water for about 6 hours, using double the amount of water to grain, if you know what I mean? Haha Then I drained them, kept them moist and covered them with a damp tea towel, moving them around every hour or so. Took about 2 days to do. Then rinsed them, put them on a low heat on the bottom shelf of the oven, turning every so often to dry out. Once dry, I put them on the top shelf and turned up the heat. Again turning every so often to prevent burning. Roast until you have the colour you want.

Will let you know how it all works out.

Just scrapped the cake from the top of it and tried a wee drop. Obviously, it still has about another 8/9 days left to ferment, but it tasted ok. Very Wheatie as you might expect. But me being me, think I may have over hopped it. But, we shall see... Still quite nice for now. I am expecting it to be more of a blonde like Hoegaarden.

Yeah, here's hoping man. Just malting another kg for another beer I am hoping to do this weekend. Let me know how it goes with your quinoa. I can never get it to do anything. When I left this morning some had started to sprout a little.

Awesome, dude. What's the quinoa look like? My buckwheat is being a little temperamental with me. Only get a few to sprout.
