Default Excellent Paper on Gluten-Free Brewing

Not sure if this has been posted here, but this is a really well-done experiment:

http://www.scientificsocieties.org/j...-1122-1159.pdf

Seems like quinoa is eminently capable of rivalling sorghum in terms of fermentability, and buckwheat may actually be superior. For all you at-home maltsters, this paper outlines optimal malting procedures, so take note!

Yup, that's a pretty good one, one of the latest documents from jib. The main issue isn't quantative with these, but qualitative. The last study that did a 100% buckwheat beer showed poor results, but as I had mentioned somewhere else it was strictly pale malt mostly for the numberical results. Other documents have gone over optimal processes (so far with conflicting information at times) as well.

This does however mean that it's up to us to use these malting procedures and tell each other just what it does taste like in a few standard beers as well as more complex ones.

I'm currently setting up a hodgepodge rig to malt at 80C and 100% humidity. I'm just having trouble getting a good kiln heat and am trying to consider different tiny scale heating devices.

How small are you talking?

Smaller than a breadbox.


No seriously.


Since I'm in an apartment I don't have much option other than the oven and it's a pretty poor one at that or a cardboard box with some heating device that won't go too high. The temperature swings are a bit too much on the high and low so I was thinking something like an electric blanket.
