try brewing a gluten free witbier. the hops profile doesn't factor in greatly to the style. leave out the hops, and for any bitterness, you could add a tad more coriander and a nice amount of bitter orange peel along with the zest from other citrus fruit

Just found this post, would like to hear what you brewed. I would definitely have gone the witbier. You can use a 100% malted & unmalted wheat grain bill, and use only bitter orange peel and coriander for the bittering. I have seen witbier recipes on the web with no hops, just not able to find one right now...

If you're brewing only extract recipes, you'll have to use sorghum. You still have a range of malted wheats and ryes to steep for a variety of recipes (Carawheat , crystal rye, chocolate wheat or rye), just not sure what you would use for bittering. As someone suggested, check out Radical Brewing for some suggestions.

@Bilby keep in mind that this is a gluten free forum so wheat and rye are a no go

I know I'm late on this one but...
As far as hop substitutions I've had success with dandelion greens as a bittering agent - they give you nice, soft, balancing bittering... We've used them both like a mash-hop and full 60 minute boil. Calculate your IBUs the same as if you were using an 8.5% AA hop.
Plus the price is right, and this is the time of the year!
