  • Gluten free and not too thrilled about it.
    Started Brewing in August 2010 and enjoying all it has to offer so far.

  • Started brewing gluten free because prior to finding out the intolerance, I was looking at potentially brewing, then moving to Ann Arbor, I found a few sorghum extracts to try out, along with a place that had gluten free beer on tap.

    It sparked a revival of my interest and I found myself here, reading the forums and reading books and I jumped in.

    I've made several large batches so far with varying success, none of which are horrible enough to dispose of.

    Curiosity.... What was the apple(s) used to create the juice? That would be the only source I
    can something to consider. No wood was involved?

    After digging around more. It appears that there may be a method more like the Japanese sake
    method but using a different type of mold, as well as including millet for Shaoxing wines. I'm
    still hoping...

    Sadly, life had gotten too busy for me to start my processes. I think I have enough parts for
    my purpose, I think, just need to assemble and wash and begin. Tbh, I've been too busy to brew
    anything, e...

    Keeping carbonated water in a keg for a while is fine too. Its best if its chilled, but
    assuming the keg was clean and sterile, you have a number of weeks. I think a few months
    actually, but its just ...

    If there is no additional fermentation, you shouldn't have an issue unless your carbonation
    level is incredibly high.Where you might have a problem is if warmed bottles added sweetener
    snd traces of y...

    As mentioned flavor will change. Not horribly as long as you'e using co2 or other neutral gas,
    but after a few years an ipa isn't as hoppy. Sometimes it could be to your advantage. Had cocoa
    nibs in a...

    Nope. Just standard cleaning, bleach/oxy, and rinsing.People try their best, but sometimes the
    most trusted way is to have a separate facility and separate equipment.Some products have
    disclaimers, li...

  • Posted in thread: sodas and kegs on 12-09-2013 at 04:17 PM
    Remember, most of the kegs held soda originally. Heck, most of the used kegs I got still had
    the dregs of old soda.So for the most part, the main issue is as mentioned, o-rings, liquid
    lines (and flav...

  • Posted in thread: Mead IPA - to boil or not to boil half of the honey? on 12-04-2013 at 08:50 PM
    No malt. Is it still a braggot? Not an ale either. IPM?

  • Posted in thread: Allergy-Sensitive Cider--Advice? on 11-25-2013 at 09:15 PM
    And yes make sure all utensils are cleaned multiple times. Usually best to keep all gluten
    free/allergen equipment away, because the grain dust could be an issue.
