That looks great. I did a chinook/cascade combo for an IPA over the summer. I thought those hops worked really well together. Still hanging on to a few bottles, but it is hard to keep them around.

Let us know how it turns out and how they like it. I think the IPA/APA style is a good choice for gluten free beers.

I did this recipe once before but used nugget and amarillo. It tasted damn good and could have passed for regular beer.

That's because the hops cover up the sorghum sometimes, other times, not so much.

Stupid question. Is the Buckwheat malted and toasted, or just toasted. Thanks.

I don't know. It is sold at whole foods in the bulk cereal isle. It just says roasted or toasted buckwheat. I steep in in a hop bag and it turns into a big pile of what looks like mashed potatoes with the skins on. Colors the breing water some.

I don't think you can buy malted buckwheat. Most of it is roasted or plain.

Exactly. However, if you do find a source for malted buckwheat or any other GF grains, let us know.
