KevinM beat me to it :). You'll notice the large difference in the diastatic power of the buckwheat compared to barley. I would say this would result in potentially higher FG because of incomplete...

If you're willing to put the time in I think the best course is to make a 1 gallon test batch minus the flavor additions. Then once it's carbed do your test "teas" with the actual base brew. That...

The sorghum syrup is closer in flavor to molasses than it is to sorghum extract. The extract is made from malting the grain whereas the syrup is generated in a completely different process.

That's what has held me back, but I'm looking at annapolis homebrew and their Brown rice syrup price is the same as their sorghum at 9.29/ 3lb. They have flat rate shipping so if i can get a big...

Did my first taste tonight. Not bad. Very little head, but nicely carbed. Tasted like like a Pils. Definitely more of a session beer than my usual fair. A little bit of a slippery aftertaste...

I haven't seen red/gray mold in my attempts, but unless I rinse it a MINIMUM of twice a day I get the white fuzzy mold.

You might find that the bitterness softens up quite a bit over the next few weeks. Most of my batches that seemed to finish slightly too bitter actually ended up a little less bitter than they...

It has a very pungent flavor. I've never used honey in place of priming sugar. It would certainly work, although I don't know if you'd be adding enough to actually notice the difference. No reason...

The only change I would suggest is the timing of the honey addition. Honey is sterile by it's very nature, so there is no need to boil it at all. Boiling does break some of it's complex proteins...

disastrous......No. The higher percentage of Sorghum you use the more likely you'll off flavors to deal with. At least anecdotally that's the experience many have had with their recipes.

Finished brewing a couple of hours ago, for lack of a better term it's a sort of "imperial" baltic porter. Time will tell if it's any good(a lot of time).
