Ireland huh? I wonder if you can find a source for sorghum somewhere? If you can, just substitute the sorghum for malt extract 1:1 and brew it like normal....or you can look through the gluten free forum for recipes and I have some in my dropdown...

I know there is a link to a kit somewhere on here from a guy named androshen but I don't know if they could ship to you.

Having commercially available gluten free beer is not really a beneficial thing ... my wife and I have at least 4 different brands we could choose from. We have tried them all and can assure you that they are all overpriced (about twice the cost of a regular beer) and *very* disappointing to taste.
Those 2 reasons are why I ventured into homebrewing in the first place.
After my first batch, based on lcasanova's American Brown Ale recipe, I am hooked on both the cost and (more importantly) the taste.
I am trying the kits in order to broaden my horizons, so to speak, but will no doubt simply continue buying the ingredients and just duplicate the kits if I like them as they are expensive also. I figure I can duplicate this current kit for only half the cost.

I have developed a gluten free beer for my wife. Won second place at the Santa Cruz County fair for specialty beer. You can get the recipe from breworganic.com (Seven Bridges brew supply Co-op.). 800-768-4409 This brew came out like a Belgian Wit. Now working on new variations. Brewed from Buckwheat.

For what its worth, I looked on this site and couldn't find anything. They do not have malted buckwheat, although they do have toasted buckwheat.

Can you get sorghum malt tubs where you are?

What type of beer do you like normally?

this might be a dumb question. but how does one go about malting a grain AFTER toasting it. i thought that the process of toasting KILLED the grain
