After lurking on these forums for a few weeks and learning about the brewing process, malting gluten-free grains, ect. I'm about ready to attempt my first my first gluten-free brewing after having Celiacs for almost two years now.
I've seen the success that people have had with the shocktop-esque beer, but was wondering if anyone has had any success with imitating a witbier like Allagash White or something like Hoegarden? I'm determined to make the attempt using the shocktop recipe as a basic guide; I'm going to attempt brewing my first beer doing all GF grains. Just wanted to see if anyone has brewed anything similar and if one were to attempt it, what mix of grains would be appropriate? The one thing that gives me hope in the project is that Witbiers derive a tremendous amount of their flavor from the yeast used, I suppose the biggest hurdle is finding a way to mimic the body of a non-GF Witbier.
From my understanding Millet is most similar to wheat nutritionally, but quinoa is closest in flavour? Possibly the inclusion of GF oats in order to fortify the body slightly?
