Thanks, but I'm not into Heavy Metal. I just want a gluten-free millet based tasty beer recipe with bitter hops, pulverized juniper berries and ginger (For arthritis) on the cheap. (Forced by government agencies to live on my wife's SS Disability check - Donations accepted!) Celiac's Disease is, by the way, protected by the Americans with Disabilities Protection Act, as signed by my Saviors, the two President Bushes.
At least I can't be "Discriminated" against. Supposedly.
For you in government-induced Socialist poverty as I am, here's my own formulated recipe:
Gluten-free champagne yeast & hops
Lots of shredded ginger
Added sugar, as needed.
I may add in the future the oscha root, known also for the same thing and back taste.
Some fresh grapes or even raisins for body.
I add, since Celiacs are vitamin B deficient, a handful of vitamin B-12 vitamins. Offsets what alcohol does.
10 cans of mixed fruit concentrate at $.69 a can from City Market for a 5 gal. batch. Or, if you can afford it, pure fruit juice.
There's usually enough corn syrup to bring your hydrometer to a good level. Thank God, that obesity-causing devil is completely eaten up by the yeast for a greater good.
1 tsp. sugar for a 16 oz. Sapporo bottle to prime after fermentation.
The only distraction is the acidity: One must buy commercial beer like Sapporo once in a while to settle the tummy.
Am perfecting my millet beer, which by the way, is naturally "Cloudy," but this African recipe comes from a land that knows hardly any high blood pressure, diabetes, nor short white guys that can't jump. Plumb full of vitamin B and a grain that is the staple of their diet, the 6th most important grain on the planet. Consumed faster than can be recorded in commercial markets.
This will warm your old bones and make for a good sunset adult beverage on the cheap.
Who wants to encourage Obama nor Pelosi with more tax money to waste, anyway?
