### Partial Mash ###
Technique: Heat about 3 gallons of water to ~150-155 degree. Put grains in a bag with first wort hops [*see below].
Soak for 30 minutes, drain (don't squeeze) & toss grains/hops.
Measure volume of wort.
8 oz GF Oats
1.5 # home toasted millet, buckwheat or whatever GF grain you like (so it is like med. dark, like 60L).
### BOIL ###
Add wort and ~4+ more gallons of water, so you start the boil with ~6.5 gallons. You should try to get 5.5 post-boil (depends on how much your system boils off).
Add extract to wort and boil for 60+ minutes:
6 # White Sorghum syrup
1 # Brown Rice syrup
8 oz Malto-dextrin
1 tsp gypsum (water treatment)
Add Yeast nutrient + Irish Moss with 10 minutes left in boil.
### HOPS ##

### POST-BOIL ###
Chill to below 70 degrees, aerate wort thoroughly, add more yeast nutrient, pitch creamy/rehydrated yeast. Shake up and continue mixing/aeration.
### FERMENTATION ###
Ferment for 21-28 days total, at 62-67 degrees. Add dry hops for the last week (only want 7 days contact).
### PACKAGING ###
Priming sugar & bottle (or keg). Put it away in a dark place and forget it. Come back in 2+ months. It is best at 2-6 months because the sorghum will age out somewhat (if you did not oxidize it during transfer).
