Is the millet malted? Because if it's not, there's no beta-glucanase present. If it is...well,
it's worth an experiment!No it's not. It's been awhile since I've done GF brews but I had a
batch that I ...

Also, some claim that by adding nutrient with DAP you can reduce some of the sorghum twang.I

How did you make the crystal oat malt? Is it actually malted or just toasted. I've been
