    I'm not a bio type, know just enough to say A. niger is probably the mold version of what
    Drosophila melanogaster (a fruit fly) is to the bio lab community. I'm guessing A. niger on my

    Have a small test batch of a gingered cream ale in ferm. Unfortunately, it seems stuck at the
    moment at 1.020, so I can't say that the recipe is 100%. Amylase only knocked it down .002.
    However, a tas...

    Been concerned about this myself. All GF batches to date have been with sorghum extract and
    lesser amounts of millet, amaranth, quinoa, buckwheat, or oats (though not all at once :cross:)
