  • After drinking the same 3 beers for 5 years I finally decided I need more flavorful beers; so I'm making my own! I have recently tried many of the amazing GF beers available in the USA (in Canada we have: New Grist, Nickelbrook, Messangiere only), and am going to work on cloning some of them.

    That recipe is crazy, I like it. I wonder if I can modify it and make Chicha instead? Although
    I would probably use hops (I hate infections); probably 1/2oz of willamette or fuggles. Then
    maybe double...

    Also I think it's short on purpose to prevent beer from getting into the co2 line easily. If
    you tip the keg or if you lower the pressure on the regulator and bleed co2 from it (instead of
    the keg lid...

    Keep in mind that the varieties of liquor/beer available in Ontario is limited compared to the
    USA *cough-LCBO* (and everything is overpriced). If I could buy T'weason ale, I would, same
    goes for Cris...

    Lets discuss it over a Bards (lol). Bard's Tale is the best commercial GF beer I've had (except
    Snowman Brewing's triple but theyre not for sale yet). They malt the sorghum, so it has malt
    character a...

  • Posted in thread: Sprouted GF grains = malted GF grains? on 10-04-2012 at 05:48 PM
    All I know is, don't trust sprouted grains to self-convert like malted ones, add amylase to be
    safe... also I think (in my case at least) they were kilned at a high temperature, because they
    tasted sl...

    Got my malt from Natures Emporium north of Toronto... don't think I can get malt across the
    border. It was listed as sprouted grains, I'm not sure who eats that but it was expensive. It
    could have bee...

  • Posted in thread: What would you pay for real GF malt? on 10-01-2012 at 09:19 PM
    I just bought 45 lbs from CO Malting Co, paid $116 w/ shipping to Denver from Alamosa (not too
    far)...With my current efficiency (not good) I would need about 10lbs grain for 5 gallon batch
    of 5.0% ab...

  • Posted in thread: What would you pay for real GF malt? on 10-01-2012 at 08:05 PM
    Most GF products are 1.5-2x the cost of regular ones, however remember we are buying in bulk
    here vs at the supermarket (where they gouge)... so $3/lb for base millet malt (2-row) would be
    fine and ot...

    Thanks for the help man... you're probably right, plus using my (heavily chlorinated) water
    probably didnt help. I roasted 2 of 6 trays badly (over 300F), and they were dark, 2 trays were
    about crysta...

    Update: Ok i probably didnt need to panic... it didnt matter anyway, the amalyse did the trick,
    it was 1.022 after, which sounds about right for the grain bill i had. Plus since it was a
    brown ale the...

how much malt could a millet malter malt if a millet malter could malt millet?
