Gluten Free Double IPA
 
Ingredients:
------------

9 lbs Sorghum Syrup (15 min)
2 lbs Brown Rice Syrup (15 min)
2.50 oz Warrior, pellet 16.8% (90 min)
.50 oz Chinook, pellet 11.4% (90 min)
1.0 oz Simcoe, pellet 12.2% (45 min)
1.0 oz Columbus, pellet 14.2% (30 min)
2.25 oz Centennial, pellet 8.3% (flameout)
1.0 oz Simcoe, pellet 12.2% (flameout)
1 tsp irish moss (10 min)
1 tsp yeast nutrient (10 min)
12.0 oz corn sugar (90 min)
1 pkg Nottingham

Do 3 dry hop additions for 1 week each.

Dry hopping:
1.25 oz Columbus, pellet 14.2%
1.25 oz Simcoe, pellet 12.2%
1.25 oz Centennial, pellet 8.3%

I mixed all of these together into a bag and pulled out 1.25 oz of the blend each week for dry hopping. I just added these to the carboy without removing the previous hops.

Carbed with 4.1 oz corn sugar

I had trouble getting the hops to sink after the 3rd and final dry hop addition. I had to use gelatin and cold crash it to get them to sink and it greatly clarified the beer. Out of the 5 gallons that made it to secondary I probably lost about 1.5 gallons to trub and gelatin at the bottom.

This was modeled after a Pliny clone, having never tasted Pliny I have no idea if I am close but I know this is one damn good beer.

The aroma is pineapply, citrusy and just overall fantastic.

I like your style on the gf brewing seņor, no reservations about a sorghum pliny!

Thanks man, I think, if someone else can brew it, why can't I make it gluten free?

I'm going to have to give this a shot and some other GF recipes. My wife is starting to believe she has a problem with gluten now. So I will get the necessary ingredients and do up a batch just to see if it makes a difference for her. She loved the Pliney clone from AHS so maybe this will please.

Nice, let me know what you think. I actually think gluten-free IPA's are pretty decent.

I'm going to have to give this a shot also. My step-mom and also one of my good friends are both allergic to gluten.

SWMBO has arrived at the same conclusion last weekend...weird.

Great looking recipe though I may have to tone it down for my wife...likes IPAs, just not tons of hops (her other problem).

Cut back on the bittering and don't dry hop...that'll give you a basic pale ale...although this one was a little strong so maybe cut back on the fermentables

Thank you sir!

For anyone else who brews this, try to drink this one fast or at least faster :drunk:
