    This is probably not the best recipe to start with if you're new to gluten free brewing. A
    single-hop IPA is probably a much better option, and will give you a sense of the sorghum
    "twang" (though the...

    found this through the Long Now Foundation. They see it as something like the seed vault in
    Svalbard; a backup of yeast strains in case of some kind of apocalyptic event.Of course, I
    would rather se...

    Interesting info here, i had a discussion (regarding light belgian candi rocks and the light
    belgian candi syrup) with the owner of my LHBS owner, who has been in business since 1991,
    about belgian li...

    Heh -- I actually dry toasted my oats. I'll try wet toasting next time. I imagine it gets more
    Maillard reactions going. They're sitting in a paper bag until I get back from a trip in two
    weeks and ca...

    Of course, you can also get alpha amylase from Sigma Aldrich isolated from human saliva (or
    pancreas!) That might make for an interesting beer...

    Newbie question: Is that gluten-free? Can't Beta Amylase be derived from grain?Just looking at
    Sigma Aldrich, a major laboratory supplier, it looks like beta amylase can indeed be derived
    from barley....

    How did this come out at bottling? I'm thinking of trying something similar for my second
    batch...Is it still a bit acidic? I've seen some people talking about balancing the acidity of
    sorghum with a ...

    This is mine. It's fairly simple, so probably a good place for new brewers (like me) to start.
    I based it off of spaced's recipe here. His blog has a few GF IPA recipes.I only bottled on
    Monday, so do...

  • Posted in thread: GF IPA Partial Boil Recipe? on 05-24-2012 at 06:48 AM
    I just bottled my first gluten free beer, it was an IPA, and I did a partial boil. The recipe
    is here: fact, it being my first boil/cold crash, I struggled a little with cooling, which
    took about an...

    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
    blog. Anyway, I ...
