I am a new brewer , just two brews under my belt. I was wondering if anyone knows of a extract kit that could brew that is glutten free. My sister was recently diagnosed with celiac, her birthday is coming and i was hopping to brew her a nice glutten free beer as a suprise. Any help would be great , thanks.

I was only able to find one or two such kits online. Since it's still a relatively new area, there aren't a lot of kits out yet. Even then, any kits at the moment are pretty easy to put together. Do you happen to know what type of beer you're looking to create?
Some of the earlier threads are about using different ingredients. Three of which are pretty easy at this point to come by:
Sorghum syrup
Brown Rice syrup
Invert sugar
oh yeah, molasses and honey.

Be aware that all of us here are still working on what we call a sorghum twang, which isn't pleasing to some people which is why we use more than just sorghum sometimes. (I do like the way a simple english ale of sorghum, Safale-s04 and Kent Golding hops came out though).
Are you looking for a heavier type of ale, or a lighter one?

Find an extract kit online that you like the sound of, and just substitute the malt extract for sorghum extract, or a mix of sorghum extract and rice syrup.

Post up the original ingredients of the kit, and we can help you out.

Also, I'd recommend using dry yeast.

I think your best bet is to use one of the sorghum/brown rice recipes that we've been coming up with in the forum rather than the kit. Something simple like
4 pounds brs
3 pounds sorghum
2 ounces of some light hops for 60
1 ounce for aroma (10 minutes or so)
some irish moss?
so4 or so5 yeast?

Actually, I think there was a gluten free blonde ale somewhere. Check Dkeshner's site, or Lcasanova, I know they have some of their recipes on their name links. I'm not doing too well with my taste reports on mine. I'm trying to figure out which bottles are which (sure I've sharpied the caps, but I don't know which number corresponds to which recipe right now thank goodness I don't have more than 10 so far.)

+1 to the above recipe, except less bittering hops and move the aroma to flameout.

Here is the blonde ale that Kevin was referring to. It turned out very light in flavor and VERY easy to drink.

Info isn't coming up on that recipe for me. Is it working for others?
