    I believe so - for malted quinoa that's been properly dried (not too hot!). I keep enzymes on
    hand though, so if the mash is taking too long I add enzymes late in the mash (I've done that
    with non-GF ...

    Safa - thanks for asking...The results were terrible. I ended up pouring the batch down the
    drain. What's worse is I have no idea why. The taste was very plastic like, what I've read
    chlorophenols are...

    This is based on my experience and estimates only, I haven't seen it in print anywhere...When I
    malted quinoa and stopped the sprouting right after I had rootlets on the majority of the
    grains, I got ...

    Finished brewing this batch yesterday. I didnít quite get full conversion, but pretty dang
    close Ė just a shadow of color change around the iodine drop when I did the starch test. Kind

    Its too bad with the tests we can't differentiate between starches. Out of everything I've
    tried mashing so far, sweet potato starch has the highest gel temps (172F - 176F). I think you
    may get full c...

    Oh yeah, I saw that thread yesterday morning, wanted to reply but didn't have time. I'm heading
    back now to do so...Maybe for part of this recipe I should mash 1/4# of the quinoa by itself,
    see if it ...

    Oh, no, that's an unwelcome surprise... Have you gotten full conversion adding the enzyme

    I apologize I never followed through with this thread - I was fairly disappointed in this
    beer...It doesn't taste much like a brown - the chocolate faded and the sorghum took over. I'd
    say in the futu...

    Part II of my summer wit post. This is the re-worked recipe from part one, which I will attempt
    to brew very soon.Iím excited about this one because I attempted to malt 2.5# of grain (quinoa,

    This is a wit style beer I made my wife last summer (before I ever heard of this forum). It
    turned out nice, and she absolutely loved it. Itís very low on bitterness (true to style), but
    higher gravit...
