    I highly recommend trying something with Rooibos. It adds a lot of red color and as I was
    hoping, it marries well with the sorghum and masks it like crazy! I'm very happy with the way
    it turned out.Wh...

    I had a heck of a time bottling with pumpkin puree. It seemed like I was having to clean my
    strainer for each bottle. Unless you use secondary fermenters (and good strainers), another
    option would be ...

    I started off with a Brewer's Best GF Ale Kit. I think we got ours online, but now even the
    local brewshop has them in stock. It turned out pretty good, and it was nice not having to
    worry about a rec...

    Your post reminds me of this: looks like a good reference if I ever decided to step it up a
    notch and start malting

    I couldn't find a color guide for all the GF grains I was interested in, so I ran an experiment
    last weekend and decided to share the results. Sorry about some of the pictures being blurry, I
    was usin...

    Yea, it tastes great!! My first GF brew, but I am pleasantly surprised. From what I've had
    (Bard's and Red Bridge), I have to say I wasn't too keen on GF beer. But now I am as long as
    its homemade!!!T...

    The next time we brew this, I would definitely suggest changing the bourbon out for vanilla
    vodka. The flavors are more complimentary. Thanks for letting us know how these batches turned
    out! It's alw...

    I snuck a taste too... If you don't like it, just remember this beer gets a lot better after
    2-3 weeks. (at least in bottles, I haven't tried keg brewing)

    I do have a question though, why did you use this specific yeast?No big reason, it's what the
    brew shop had. I've heard different strains of yeast give different characters to the beer, but
    haven't go...
