It's hard to say; I've never used it exclusively, and most of my usage of it has been in small quantities relative to other grains. That's one of the reasons I want to do a brew that really features it. I know other members here have used it, though...but it seems a lot of those who have don't post much these days.

That's cool. What hops did you use? Is there a specific brand you are trying to clone? I am going to hopefully be doing one over the weekend. Going to be using Golding's and fuggles and using a 'normal' bitter recipe but using gluten free grains. Might even add a tad of cascade in towards the end to make it more like a Timmy Taylor's with the fruity after taste.

Let us know how it works out, man. I think that could be good for something like a bitter with the earthy taste to it.

I made a beer out of 'stuff I had left over' about a week or so ago. Also added some ham flavourings to give it a bacon flavour too it. Actually works. Haha

Well I don't think this quinoa's gonna turn crystal. After two hours at 145F, the flavor of the grain has not changed. So I'm just gonna dry it and give it a mild roasting and call it done. Guess I'm gonna have to malt my own!

Seen that one before. I didn't really take much notice of it, to be honest.


Doing a bitter tomorrow. Using brown sugar and golden syrup along with my malt and crystal. Using Fuggles and Golding's. will show you how it comes out.

That sounds a lot like the bitter I brewed a few days ago, but I used mostly millet with just a small percentage of buckwheat. That site made it sound like buckwheat would give an authentic beer like flavor.

Yeah, read another one like that the other day too. To be honest, when ever I have used the crystal type buckwheat, it doesn't have 'the taste' and does taste like a normal beer. Especially when I have used German hops. But when I roast the malt fairly dry, I get 'the taste'.

I might be adding some flaked millet and some maize to clear as well as some Irish moss, of course. Haha

Sorry, just to add to this. Following the success of my Buckwheat, I have just tried to make crystal corn. I would say it is kind of a success, but won't know until I use it. Below are some pictures of it.
