    I should also add quickly that I ended up racking twice to really clarify this beer, and on the
    second racking I added a bit of yeast nutrient--I was worried that fermentation had stopped.
    I'm not sur...

    Having just done my first GF batch, I would suggest the following for starting out:7 lbs

    I've completed given up on the maple flavour. Any that was there was probably boiled off on
    brew day. However this beer has turned out really nice. The sorghum aftertaste can be pretty
    nasty which had...

    I concur on the bitterness. A couple weeks after racking the bitter aftertaste was really
    off-putting. Now after about five weeks in the carboy it's still there but much better. I
    expect a couple mont...

    I was wondering if I could use a better yeast myself. In my first GF batch I used Sorghum syrup
    and a little maple syrup. I used a Nottingham ale dry yeast and while the beer has fully
    fermented now i...

    Gravity finally down to 1.012 so should be ready for the bottle any time. The taste has really
    mellowed out now with the harsh aftertaste all but gone. Going to put some fresh vanilla bean
    in and leav...

    An update on my gluten-free ale....I left it in the primary for 7 days instead of the usual 4.
    The gravity was still up at 1.026. I racked a second time, adding some yeast nutrient to try
    and kick thi...

    I wrapped the coil around a paint can to maintain a clean shape. Thanks for sharing pics!

    Great advice jackson_d--thanks. That should be mind blowing when it's ready to drink! :)

  • Posted in thread: Maple Nut Brown Ale critique? on 12-14-2009 at 04:05 PM
    I'm curious to hear how this turned out. I just did a batch with maple syrup and worry I don't
    have enough maple flavor. I used 7 lbs malt extract with 1 lb of syrup. I'm going to taste at
    racking tim...
