Well, good news has come my way. After much poking and prodding the good doctors of Albuquerque have determined that I am not gluten intolerant and that my problem is probably stress and old age related. In other words they don't know what is going on and I shouldn't worry about it. They advised I continue to take it easy for a while, get more excersise, watch my diet, especially fast-food and coffee. So all of you who advised RDWHAHB were on the right trail.

I have not had much beer since all this began and the little I have had of late has gone down just fine. So, there it is. All of you who thought you had gotten rid of me, well, sorry, it won't be so easy.

Thanks again for all your concern and support.
Before I learned to brew I was poor, sober and lonely. Now I am just poor.

(well, except for the gluten-intolerance beer-lovers' community, who just lost their patron saint).

I'm still interested in exploring the GF route, I'm ordering some of the GF yeast new week.

Glad to hear it, that's great news! (Except for those who invested in sorghum futures, based upon your earlier diagnosis...)

That's excellent news, BP...

I've got a friend (the guy who got me into brewing and taught me how to get started) who is a huge beer geek like me...and he's been mildly sick for awhile and it never goes having a mild cold all the time. So he's been told by the docs to cut back on drinking in general...and now they tell him that he should go gluten-free for at least a year to see if it clears up. The kid is my age, 28 or so. Effing crazy. I'm thinking of putting together a gluten-free brew for him too.

Great News BP. Glad to here you are back and everything is working out. Are you still going to explore the GF route at all. I still have a lot of reading to finish up from info i found on the interweb and what not.
The Fast food thing, should be apart of everyones thought process.

That's great news!

I have found a few Gluten free beers on the market.

New Grist Beer from Lakefront Brewery.

Bard's Tale Beer

Redbridge Beer from AB

I found all three of these beers at Jungle Jim's in Ohio.
