So, I made an IPA using Clarity-Ferm. My friend with gluten issues was able to drink it without a reaction. I know a lack of reaction is not an absence of adverse effects, but I'm happy she was able to enjoy. I did tell her to drink half of one and wait a while. She drank one, waited then drank to other two (12oz bottles). Here is the recipe for reference:

12. lb Maris Otter
0.5 lb White Wheat
0.5 lb Cara-Pils
0.75 lb C15
0.5oz Magnum (60min)
1.0oz Mosaic (15min)
1.0oz Mosaic (5min)
1.0oz Mosaic dry-hopped
Whirfloc
Wyeast Nutrient
Clarity-Ferm (added at yeast pitch)
WLP001

Tommyguner03,

Did you get a diagnosis? Sounds like Dermatitis Herpetaformis, which is what I have. When I consume gluten I get blisters filled with a clear fluid on my feet, hands, lower back, knees, elbows and face. Before the blisters break, I almost want to use sandpaper on my skin, after its not as bad but any heat applied to the area (ie shower) hurts like hell.

The nice part about it is there is a drug that helps like magic. Dapsone. Minimal side effects (fatigue due to lower hemoglobin production) but the itching is gone and no new blisters within about 24 hours.

Overall its still better to try living gluten free, the dapsone just lets you manage when you really want to try a beer & soft pretzel kind of thing.

not a full diagnosis just blood work, next step is to get diagnosed. i get the acne on face, neck, and mostly on back. my back used to covered and i was always accused of taking steroids back in high school. I'll have to check out Dapsone. thanks.

I have celiac disease and made a Honey Cream Ale extract brew with barley and Clarity Ferm. I"ve been drinking one or two every day for the past few weeks and have no reactions! I have a Chocolate Milk Stout going now, hope it works the same!

nice write up, I have not gotten all the way through but I must point out that proline is an amino acid not a protein. Proline is found in almost every protein on earth. Clarity-Ferm hydrolizes proteins at the proline amino acid and likely does this to all proteins in the mash

Oh good, are you a chemist? Maybe you can explain the process to me in greater detail, because I don't quite have the background to make complete sense of it all. Does the proline itself get broken down (and if so, into what?), or does the enzyme just sever the bonds between proline and any adjacent amino acids? I'm really trying to get all the facts straight on this, but without a food science degree, it's difficult.

I just want to make sure everyone knows that Proline is not a protein, its an amino acid. It can be combined with other amino acids to form a protein but this statement from igliashon "Proline is the main protein implicated..." i simply not true. I' sure it was a type and he/she meant to say the proline rich peptide, but even if he/she did not mean to write it, the truth is the truth. Proline is an amino acid, not a protein
