Hey, this coverts at about 60% in an infusion partial mash, and ferments very well, tried it in 2 batches, I'll report back on taste.

Just confirmation do they only malt oats, or is there anything in place making sure there isn't substantial cross contamination from sometimes processing wheat on the same machinery?

I dont know, it can be a problem with oats. high gravity in tulsa is the retailer and fawcetts is the manufacturer. the owner at high gravity is a celiac and didnt react to it and im not that sensitive, so i may just see if i react or talk to fawcetts. first i want to see how good it is......

Fawcett definitely doesn't just do oats, they do barley and wheat.

The owner of HG is indeed a celiac though, and I know she uses it in her beers.

Just tested this for gluten, it was a 5 gallon batch with 5# of fawcett malted oats, some sorghum, dark candy, and maltodextrin, and whites ale yeast diluted down to less than 1 ppm in final beer.

It tested at very high levels levels of gluten with the EZ gluten test. I think it may be a cross contamination problem, and maybe thats why it converted but I'm not sure. Any ideas?

Well, that's not good.

I was under the impression that there isn't a gluten test kit available for the average joe that is considered accurate or at least guaranteed to be when testing an alcoholic beverage.

Did you make an attempt to test the oats on their own(which is much more inline with the kit instructions)?

My first thought it that those tests are worthless. They give false positive and false negative results all the time. My second thought is I wouldn't trust the oats being GF anyways.
