Brewers Best has just introduced a Gluten Free Ale kit, Don't know much about it. The kit contains 2-3.3 lb white sorghum, 1 Belgium Golden Candy syrup, some maltodextrin, a spice pack, which includes: bitter orange peal, lemon peal and some whirlfloc. It uses 3 packages Cascade hops and Windsor yeast.
For those of those with gluten problems this is a great start.

I picked this up from my local home brew store last weekend, haven't brewed it up yet. I'm curious to see how it compares to ales with gluten.

I made this kit when it first came out just to support my LHBS for carrying GF stuff and liked it. I was doing extract only at the time and this kit taught me the importance of Belgian candy syrup and maltodextrin for extract batches with sorghum syrup. I brewed it to their instructions and then experimented on later batches. Did your kit come with Windsor yeast?

I bought the Brewer's Best Gluten Free Ale kit last week.
My neighbor, a homebrewer, let me use his equipment to brew my first batch and brew.
I am awaiting my supplies from Northern Brewer.
My first batch is in the fermenter. I am supposed to be patient. LOL
I already texted him to see if it is ready. I brewed it this afternoon. (Of course I know it is not done. HeHe)
The wort came in at a SG of 1051. It tasted pretty close to his ale he made from a kit this weekend.
We are going to do a secondary fermentation before bottling.
Looking forward to our first taste.
