Default Recipe without candi syrup??

I want to do a 1Gal test batch for a friend at work of GF beer. Looking over recipes I see most have candi syrup. Being its a test batch to see if he likes the beer do any of you have any recpes without it. I just figure its a pain in the *** to make for such a small batch.

You could try some variation of Hop Bursted Pale Ale here. It is an all rice syrup recipe (as in no surghum) which is a little unusual, but it uses buckwheat honey as an additional fermentable and contains no candi syrup.

Pain in the *** to make? You can buy it, you know. Lowest price I've seen is about $7.50 a pound, but it's definitely worth it (IMO).

Candi syrup adds a bit of dimension to your beer and some residual sweetness. The darker colours also add a nice hue to the beer.

Having said that, there are lots of alternatives; honey (as said above try buckwheat honey), turbinado, brown sugar, white sugar, golden syrup, molasses, agave syrup.......you get the picture

Molasses, honey and Demerara sugar always works for me, and molasses is only a couple of quid here. And it must be even cheaper for guys, considering it mostly comes from your half of the world.

Dude, I don't think Americans have Golden Syrup... Or if they do it is an import and is very expensive.

zymurgy may/june 2012 has a chestnut one that looks good.. might make that for the mother in-law.. no candi syrup in it.. soaked chestnut chips with amylace and dextrose are the only fermentables.. that sounds delicious foe christmas time

Was ordering some supplies today and decided to check Midwest for good measure, and they now have flat-rate shipping which really helps. Their candi syrup is only $6.49/pound. Their Fawcett oat malt and Golden Naked Oats are a great deal too, for those that use/tolerate them.
