    Is Clare. The stuff that 'deglutens' beer? if it is the same stuff I'm thinking about, I
    personally would mess with the stuff. I feel 'deglutened' beer is not the same as beer made
    from gluten free in...

    I recall reading something, I think from Australia, where a guy was making 'biscuits' out of
    gluten free stuff, roasting them to a desired level, then crushing them up...Behold! The power

    type). I mostl...

    I have gotten the opportunity to enter a small GF brewing competition with a friend. It is

    It takes about a month for all my known effects to clear when I ingest something. I usually get

    The only decent commercial GF beer I have had is the Green's brand. I have never heard of the
