"twang" (though the...

Heh -- I actually dry toasted my oats. I'll try wet toasting next time. I imagine it gets more

Oh hey, it's you. Thanks for the blog and recipes -- I've just bottled my first gluten free
beer, funnily enough also an all-Chinook IPA based on the all-Centennial IPA recipe on your
