I don't normally brew gluten-free, but I just discovered that my buddy's fiancee has celiac. I had planned to make him some celebratory beer, but now I have been thinking that it'd be great to make something GF if I can. But the beer will be for a GF and non-GF audience, so to speak.
Thus, my question is: can you recommend a GF recipe for a brewer not experienced in making GF beer, that will also be enjoyable to those not used to GF beer? I have a few other constraints: the wedding is in April, so it shouldn't take too long to brew/condition; it shouldn't be a dark beer, because I don't think that goes with spring or celebrations; and ideally it won't be REALLY REALLY hoppy (think more of an APA than an IPA).
My initial candidate is here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f164/pac...gf-ipa-321452/
But I think I would walk back the bittering hops a bit (perhaps just use them a bit later, as flavor hops) and shoot for more like 50 IBUs at most.
I was also considering something along these lines, though probably a touch darker: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f164/hon...de-ale-363500/
Since I don't normally do GF, I guess I was thinking I would not try to mess with more "advanced" techniques, such as enzymes. But if that is what works, let me know.
Thanks very much!
